2015-2016 State Testing Requirements for HHS Students
There have been some changes in the State testing requirements for our high school students this year. Below is an outline of the tests our students will be taking and a timeline for administration.
The SAT replaces the ACT this year. TheSATis the the nation’s most widely used college admission test that covers content areas deemed essential for success in college: reading, math, writing, and language. Students are encouraged to take the ACT on their own as an additional assessment for college admissions.
The PSAT provides early feedback to help students identify the knowledge and skills they need to be college and career ready. These are the same skills and knowledge as those measured by the SAT, so students and teachers can monitor progress and and identify areas in need of improvement. The PSAT is the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship taken during junior year.

Haslett High School Senior Portraits
Senior photo time is upon us! In order to make the yearbook production process easier and photo quality stronger, we ask that photos fit the following specifications.
• Photos should be in Full Color and in digital format. We will accept actual prints, but prefer digital.
• Images MUST be 300 dpi jpegs. This is crucial to good quality reproduction.
• Digital image dimensions should measure 1.5 x 2 inches. Remember that if the head size is exceedingly small, the student’s face will not be as visible. Please crop to appropriate dimensions.
• If your student opts not to have his or her portrait taken from an outside-of-school professional photographer, please consider dressing nicely for the photo taken at registration. The quality of the photos works well for the yearbook.
• While we will accept the background of your subject’s choice (including outdoors), please understand that ultra-cluttered backgrounds will not be pleasing and that revealing poses or poses including props will not be accepted. Keep in mind the size the photo runs in our book. A head and shoulder pose is preferred.
• Professional portrait photographers generally take responsibility for getting the photo to the yearbook staff. Please communicate with photographers regarding this.
Deadline for senior portraits is Monday, Nov. 2, 2015
Ways to submit photos:
• Go to www.hjeshare.com and upload photos to a web storage site. To access the site, type in the school code hhs3956 and follow directions from there. You can watch a video that will give you specific directions on how to upload. Before uploading, please name your file: senior portrait_student name . The site will be used for uploading other types of photos, so it is key that you indicate the images are senior portraits.
• Save images to a CD and deliver it to the high school. Please include a list of whose photo is on the CD.
• Mail CD or actual prints to Attn: Julie Price, Dixit Yearbook, Haslett High School, 5450 Marsh Road, Haslett, MI 48840.
Any questions about photos for the Haslett yearbook may be directed to me here at school via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, of course, the yearbook staff will be sending out information in November about senior ads. Watch for an email with sizes and pricing.
Professional portrait photographers, if you are interested in advertising in the 2016 Dixit yearbook, be sure to contact the yearbook staff through Julie Price.
