Announcements for 4/25

April 25, 2011

Good morning, today is Monday, April 25th, and it is an A Day for everyone!

Today and tomorrow, 8th grade students will be taking the EXPLORE test. It is crucial for students to be present at school and prepared to take an important assessment.
 This test measures a student's readiness for college, as well as providing a list of career suggestions based on student interest. The Interest Inventory, the first part of the test, is always the most fascinating part for students because it measures their interests and allows them to choose from a list of careers that may be of interest to them. Students have been working hard to prepare for this test and historically LMS students have done very well. We thank you for noting this as an important part of attendance at school. Students have been preparing with practice exams for the EXPLORE test so that they may be ready.

If you have questions about this test, please contact Ms. Wickham.

The Capital Area Career Center will be offering a Career Discovery Summer Camp June 7-10th for students who are completing 7th, 8th, or 9th grade. Please click on the flyer to find out more information.
