2012 PTA Grad Chair
Dear Senior Parents,
We would like to update you on the various PTA driven activities for our Seniors.
1- We will have another meeting on March 11, 7:30 pm in the Principal's Conference Room
2- The students have voted on the design for their T-shirts, Crew and Hoodie Sweatshirts. I've attached the design so you can see it.
We will be going out for pre orders by the end of February. We will also be offering a blue NHS Class of 2015 coffee mug with all the kids names on it as well and the Saxon logo.
3- Distribution of the merchandise will take place in March. There will be several opportunities to order.
4- Ticket Sales for Grad night will commence in April again after Spring break on Fridays. The price in April will be $55 dollars and then May will be $65. June's price will be determined by our budget. Hopefully we will keep it to $65. Tickets can also be purchased at the door on Grad night as long as the permission slip is with the student.
5- In April we will be looking for parent donation sign ups for Grad night like water, etc once we have finalized our plans.
6- One thing we are looking for is the use of 2 ping pong tables. If you have one you can easily get to the Gable house for us either the night before or the morning of graduation please email me as soon as you can. Thanks
Any questions please email me!

Attention Graduating Seniors- El Camino Community College entrance assessment testing information:
El Camino Community College (ECC) will be administering their entrance assessment test on Wednesday, March 4th in the Library. All students applying to El Camino must take this test before they start registering for classes. You MUST sign up to take the test before 5/4. If you have already taken the assessment test at North or El Camino, you will not be able to re-take the test here at North. This test is specifically for those seniors who have not taken the assessment test yet.
We will have 2 sessions on 3/4. You can sign up for either an 8am or 10am session. Please do not sign up for both sessions. The test takes approximately 2 hours. I recommend that you pick a session that has the least conflict with your academic classes. Spots are limited to 50 students for each session, so sign up NOW!
The steps to take this test are:
1) Apply to El Camino College http://www.elcamino.edu/apply/. This step is important, as it will provide you with your ECC ID number. You will need this number to take the assessment test
2) Sign up for the test via Naviance (Colleges Tab ----> View Upcoming Visits ----> Sign Up). Please see me if you don't know how to log in to Naviance.
3) Fill out a Rep Rap form for the class periods that you will miss for that day. The test will take you some time, so we want to make sure that your first four teachers know that you'll be in the library for a good reason. The Rep Rap form can be found in K-1 or in the counseling office.
4) I will have printed sample tests/study packets for the first 50 students who sign up for the test. Come see me in K-1 to pick those up after you register online!!!
5) Show up to the Library 1st period on Thursday 3/4. Make sure you have your ECC ID number, a picture ID, and your login information for your 'My ECC' account.
This test will determine what level Math and English you start at while taking classes at ECC. It is important that you take this test seriously. Please visithttp://www.elcamino.edu/studentservices/assessmenttesting/testprep.asp for more study material.
If you need special accommodations to take this test, please see me immediately. As always, if you have any questions at all, please come and see me in K-1!
