Tech conducts a math assessment of incoming students to ensure they’re placed in the correct math class in the fall, and, equally key, to help both students and their families identify areas of strength and areas in need of improvement upon which to focus.
The assessments take place from 4–5:30 PM in Tech’s Quick Lunch Room in the basement. Students must show up no later than 4:30 PM with a sharp pencil in hand. Tests must be completed by 5:30 PM. To ensure we’re not overwhelmed with the number of students testing in one sitting, we’re conducting the assessments based on the first letter of the student’s last name:

Please join us for the final Bulldog Parents Book Club meeting of the year on Wednesday, May 23, at 7:15 PM, in the Principal’s Conference Room (to the left when you enter the lobby) as we discuss The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood— a stark, dystopian classic that has generated renewed awareness since the 2016 election and a recent award-winning production on Hulu. This novel was read this year by many 12th grade students.
The book club is a terrific opportunity to chat about works that Bulldog students are delving into, plus enjoy good, lively conversation with other enthusiastic readers in the Tech community. All are welcome … even if you haven’t read or finished the book! Hope to see you then and there!
The Handmaid’s Tale is a dystopian novel by Canadian author Margaret Atwood, originally published in 1985. It is set in a near-future New England, totalitarian, Christian theonomy that has overthrown the United States government. The novel focuses on the journey of the handmaid Offred. Her name derives from the possessive form “of Fred”; handmaids are forbidden to use their birth names and must echo the male, or master, whom they serve.
The Handmaid’s Tale explores themes of women in subjugation to misogyny in a patriarchal society and the various means by which these women attempt to gain individualism and independence.
