HS Feb5

Dear High School parents,

This one is a short week and I wish you all a great 5 day break. 

The conference ended last Friday and Ms. Schmidtke and Ms. Murrell took the group to Paris until today. They are landing at 4.15 PM. 

Our boys did well and finished…..Thank you to our players and to coach Mario, coach Stalin and Mr. Fuentes! 

MAP goal setting
9th and 10th graders now have access to their MAP scores and will be setting goals with their Math and English teachers.

College Counseling: 
Courses options for 2019-2020
This past week 9-11 grade students were presented with information about their course options for next year. If you or your students have questions or would like to discuss academic planning please schedule a meeting with either Mr. Wasser or Ms. Keyes through the Counseling Office Secretary, Ms. Paula Luna: pluna@cotopaxi.k12.ec.

SAT on March 9th
For those of you interested in taking the SAT on March 9th (Registration deadline February 8), the ONE Institute will be offering SAT Preparation Courses starting February 4th. The classes will run from February 4th to February 28th, a total of 34 hours of instruction.  Classes will take place from 3:40-5:40 p.m. Monday through Thursday.  Additionally, there is a Saturday only option available as well (February 2nd - April 27th: Saturdays 9am-12pm). This option will prepare you to take the SAT on May 4th.  The cost for either is $699.  If you are interested, please contact the One Institute immediately at theoneinstitute@cotopaxi.k12.ec. 

English Proficiency Testing
The TOEFL English Proficiency Test is an admissions requirement for a super-majority of university applications to the United States, Canada, and Europe.  The only country exception is the UK, where you must take the IELTS test.  

If you are a parent of an 11th grader, I definitely recommend that your student take an English Proficiency examination this year, as it is definitely something that you can get done this year.  Although there are other TOEFL iBT test centers in Quito, I definitely recommend using the ONE Institute Test Center.  Please do not delay in signing up as soon as possible.

For those of you who are parents of a student  in 11th or 10th grade and are considering a Summer Program, a Summer Program your student is applying to may require a TOEFL score.  If this is your case, I highly recommend signing up for the February 16th test date as soon as possible.

Below I have listed all the dates the ONE Institute will be providing the TOEFL iBT.  If you have any questions, concerns, or difficulty signing up on the TOEFL website, please do not hesitate to contact me at lwasser@cotopaxi.k12.ec.
