PSAT Sales

Freshmen and Juniors have an opportunity to take the PSAT (offered only one time each year) in October. It is the only qualifying test for National Merit Scholarships for all juniors. As freshmen, it is a great practice test as you will get both your corrected answer sheet and test booklet back when the scores are returned.

The Arcadia Music Club hosts the Saturday, October 18 test for freshmen and juniors. The cost of the test is $35.00 ($40.00 for late pays and walk-ins) and sign-ups will be held one week only, from September 22 to September 26, 2014. Students will need a photo ID and check or cash to purchase a test. Come to the PAC courtyard during lunch only that week.

All sophomores will take the PSAT during the school day on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. There is no need for sophomores to sign up for the test.

We need YOUR help the week of the presale. Please consider signing up to volunteer. Help is needed from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. To volunteer, please follow this link to VolunteerSpot http://vols.pt/E81f8S

Fall Fundraiser - Apache Walk

On Saturday September 20, the Arcadia Music Club will hold its annual fall fundraiser.   The fall fundraiser is normally a carwash; however, due to the need to conserve water during the drought, the event this year will be the Apache Walk.  The shift to a walk-a-thon instead of a car wash makes it especially important for students to work hard to get sponsors, in order to make up for lost day-of-carwash donations.   All students in the music program have received a flyer explaining the details of the Apache Walk, together with a pledge sheet and an envelope to place pledges received.  All students are asked to sign-up for a one hour slot using sign-up sheet located in their respective music classrooms.  Available time slots are 8 am, 9 am, and 10 am.  Every student is being asked to secure at least $60 in pledges.  The following is a summary of Apache Walk details:

  • Students should turn in their pledge sheets this week to their music director.  If they forget, they can bring their pledge sheets and donations to the walk itself.  The last day for return of pledge donations is Wednesday, September 23.

  •  Students should strive to get lump-sum donations rather than donations on a per lap basis.  This will speed up the processing of donations and avoid the need to contact sponsors after the Apache Walk with a tally of the number of laps completed.

  • Students should check-in at the tables located between the band and orchestra rooms at their scheduled time slot.  At check-in each student will then receive an index card that will be stamped each time they complete a lap.  Once their hour is finished, students are asked to check-out and inform the check-out volunteers how many laps were completed.

  • Students may bring sponsors or family members with them to participate in the walk.  We will have a donation box available to receive any day-of-the event donations.

The Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation is seeking volunteers to serve at the Arcadia Performing Arts Center!
