The district will conduct computerized testing to establish a concussion baseline through Aug. 23 for student-athletes who will participate in fall sports in the upcoming school year.
All student athletes entering seventh, ninth and 11th grades are required to take the ImPACT Baseline Testing as well as any students who did not receive a baseline test during 2011-12. The testing will be held at the Mars Area Middle School computer lab. Here's the schedule:
Monday -- Girls varsity/junior varsity soccer, 9 a.m.; boys varsity/junior varsity football, noon; boys varsity/junior varsity soccer, 4 p.m.
Tuesday -- Girls varsity/junior varsity tennis and coed cross-country, 11:30 a.m.; girls varsity/junior varsity volleyball, 2:30 p.m.

The 2011-12 school district calendar and the Quaker Valley Better Together video each earned awards of merit and the Quaker Valley Middle School Renovation Blog earned an honorable mention in the National School Public Relations Association's 2012 Publications and Electronic Media Awards contest.
Quaker Valley's winning publications, which were among 701 entries in the contest, were coordinated by Martha Smith, the district's communications manager who retired in June.
