February 12: CFI Open House will give community a new look at the ‘old West’

Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 2.12.19 PMCurious about what’s going at the old Lapeer West High School? You’ve seen the new sign at the road, but what’s really happening in there? The new research and development facility for Lapeer Community Schools (LCS), the Center for Innovation, will host an open house on Thursday, February 12, from 6-7:30 p.m.

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the full slate of academic and extra-curricular offerings, for students at all levels, housed in the facility.

During the open house, you can see demonstrations from the District’s robotics teams, peruse coursework from Project Lead The Way (STEM), learn about virtual and alternative options, Senior Capstone, College on Campus and much more. Every program housed in the facility will be represented.

“The purpose of this event is to promote the programs and provide an opportunity for parents and families involved in the programs to be able to see what’s happening,” said Matt Olson, CFI Director. “I know a lot of people out there still don’t really understand what we are all about. People need to know that the West Campus is alive and well. It’s pivotal to the long-term growth of the District.”

CFI-West opened in September 2014 and currently serves as many as 700 students per day.
