DURING ALL LUNCHES
April 21 - 23, 2014
COUNSELOR COFFEE TALK AND ACT EXPLORE INTREPRETATION
Dear 8th Grade OLMS Parents:
Please join us for a comprehensive overview of the results of the ACT Explore student score report. You will walk away with a strong understanding of your child’s performance and college readiness. ACT Explore results will be distributed at the Counselor Coffee Talk on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the OLMS Cafeteria.
We are doing our presentation in conjunction with Abbott Middle School. The results will be referred to during the presentation that evening. This night is for parents only! Students will receive a similar presentation in their science classes prior to this meeting.
During the month of April we will use these results as a piece for the career portfolio that we will begin to develop with your child. The electronic portfolio, called an EDP or Educational Development Plan, will be used as a career exploration tool throughout high school. The purpose of this portfolio is to guide overall career development by encouraging students to set goals, document academic successes and survey their changing career interests. The EDP is recorded via the “Career Cruising” website. Using the website, students will learn how to research and explore careers, job outlooks for the future, colleges, tuition, and financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Career Cruising allows students and parents to go online to access the program at home, as well as at school.
We urge you to remember that these results only represent a snapshot of the child’s abilities and interests at this time and should be used to promote discussions at home and school. This career exploration process will continue at West Bloomfield High School with further assessments and discussions. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at (248) 865-4480, or by email.
