National Honor Society

The National Honor Society will be starting up tutoring tomorrow at lunch in room B230. There will be one to two students there daily to help with any academic questions students might have. We have calculators and chromebooks and are a nice place to send students if you are in a meeting at lunch or if the student just needs some extra help. See the Blake website for more information.

Clarification about Online Grades

The only grades that kids will be able to see through My MCPS Classroom will be the ones that are actually graded in Classroom. If they want to see the entire gradebook, like they did in edline, they have to go to a different website: When they sign in there, they can see everything, including what teachers put in their Pinnacle gradebooks. If you click on the “Grades” tab in MyMCPS Classroom, you will NOT see your entire grade.

College Readiness Day, Oct. 11

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome back to another school year. October 11 is a very important date on the school calendar at Blake High School – College Readiness Day. On this day, we will pause from our instruction in the morning to give every 9-11 grader the opportunity to know where they stand in preparation for life after high school. The College Board’s Preliminary SAT (PSAT) will be one of the main focuses for the day. We will administer the official PSAT, or a practice test, on Wednesday, October 11 at 7:45 a.m. to students in grades 9, 10 and 11. The PSAT is the first official step on the road to college and we hope you will use this information to discuss post-secondary planning with your student. In addition, for Juniors not taking the PSAT, we will be offering the Accuplacer for students who are considering other options for college, namely two year community college programs.

All students in Grades 9-11 are to be in school on October 11 for testing.
