    Keep your fingers crossed for my Juniors-- and everyone else's.

    They've worked hard this year in SAT Prep. I hope they do what they're capable of on this test and don't overthink the questions!

    My son's taking them right now- hoping for the best!

    He wasn't nervous about it before he left. In typical teenage boy fashion, he was more worried about how he was going to eat before he had to be at the baseball field at 1:15. The school never plays on Saturdays- who schedules the one Saturday Varsity game for the same day as SATs??

    How incredibly stupid!!!!

    Those kids spend something like 6 hours at the testing site, with I think 2 breaks-- one 10 minutes, the other 5. I told them to bring money for food and hit McD's or Burger King on the way home.

    Not the day to schedule ANY Varsity sport.

    I'm in total agreement- there should not be any sports scheduled for the afternoon following SATs. Let the kids focus on the test then relax for the afternoon. Testing for that long, straight through, in one day is absolutley exhausting!
