Mock ACT/SAT Exams—College Entrance Exam Prep!
The Woodson PTSO "mock" exam program offers full-length ACT and SAT exams to help prepare students take these college entrance exams. Exams are administered by Princeton Review, which also hosts a score-back session providing students with the mock exam scores, information on how to interpret them, and test-taking tips. Students who participated in the February mock exams (SAT, ACT, PRA) are encouraged to attend the scores-back session on Wednesday, March 20, at 7:00 pm in Cafeteria A. At this session Princeton Review will distribute student scores, provide guidance on interpreting them, offer an overview of the different college entrance exams, and present test-taking tips and strategies. This session is open only to students who took the mock exams. Students intending to attend should register on the Princeton Review website; Princeton Review will only be bringing scores for students who are registered for the session.

Understanding the Woodson Parent Pledge
The Woodson Community Coalition is in place to proactively
support our parents and students regarding alcohol and drug abuse on our campus and in our community.
We are one of many parent-led Community Coalitions who are active throughout Fairfax County schools.
We are committed to offering educational seminars and other helpful
information to our parents and students on the critical issue of alcohol and drug abuse.
The consequences for not engaging proactively on this topic are serious. So please, click here to read more on this
important topic, and understand the purpose of the Woodson High School Safe and Drug Free Parent Pledge.
Student Driver Car Magnets
These great magnets are still available in the front office -- just $8 each or 3 for $20!

a license can be obtained.
Place the yellow-and-black STUDENT DRIVER magnets on all cars being driven,
driver's door, parent's door, back of vehicle.... Everyone will feel safer.
