Sophomores, juniors take PSAT exam

Sophomores and juniors took the PSAT/NMSQT, while the freshmen went on a community service trip and the seniors received the full day off yesterday.

The freshmen earned five community service hours through their class trip. They travelled to Coyote Valley Open Space Preserve in Morgan Hill, where they did trail maintenance and native plant restoration.

The trip is in partnership with Harker’s Green Committee, as they are introducing an environmental education. Freshmen met with an expert from the preserve prior to the trip to learn about the land they will be working with.

The seniors were allotted the full day to work on college applications or relax.
