When a representative from Saginaw Valley State University recently asked a group of LHS juniors if they liked a variety choices in education, the spice of life compelled nearly every student to raise their hand.
Those students are in the right place.
It’s hard to believe, but students in the District of Choices are on the brink of scheduling for the 2016-17 school year. With so many options available to students in grades 6-12, we hope that parents will take full advantage of the evening presentations intended for them, as well as to carefully review the materials that their students bring home from their information sessions during the school day.
The discussion that takes place within the home, along with the guidance of counselors, teachers and school professionals, are all important pieces to the puzzle when our young people are making decisions about their middle school and high school courses to prepare them for their post-secondary options. Listed in bold are the events that are specifically planned for parents to attend:
Jan. 27: Junior Jump (school day) at CFI.
Jan. 28: UM-Flint presents to LHS sophomores and juniors (school day)
