Rolland-Warner students explore their futures on College Day

college dayJPGWednesday at Rolland-Warner was College Day, one big part of Spirit Week.  The school’s Eighthgrade students had a special treat during the last two hours of their day in preparation for the ACT Explore test that they will take on April 10. Three groups of about 70 students rotated through three different stations where they heard about specifics of high school and college: ACT scores and grade point averages needed to get into certain colleges, and some details about the Explore test itself and why it’s important to try their best on the test.

Three special guests joined them: Ms. Bennett’s son Christopher, a senior at North Branch High School who is dually-enrolled in the University of Michigan’s Engineering program, Mrs. Wilcox, math teacher at Lapeer West High School and Ms. Wolski, English teacher at Lapeer East High School.

The students had some great questions about college entrance and also discussed why they each thought that doing well on the ACT Explore test was really important.

Thanks to the eighth grade teachers and Ms. Brunett, our interventionist for putting this college-informational program together and to our special panel speakers.
