SPRING COLLEGE FAIR

This year we were not able to host a Fall College Fair due to logistics and planning by TACRAO, but after countless emails from disappointed college reps TACROA has again asked us to host a Spring College Fair.

Our Spring Fair is Wednesday, March 29th from 12:50-2:30, in the middle school gymnasium.

Thanks to the support from our wonderful faculty, MEF and the community all students in grades 9-11 will have an opportunity not usually afforded to most public school students: an on-site College Fair event. Hosting a College Fair on our campus helps forge a great working relationship with college representatives. Every year the college representatives comment on how much they love our fair (the catered lunch is a favorite….thanks MEF). Year after year I hear comments from the college representatives in regards to our “articulate and well-mannered student body”. Please encourage your students to build upon the impressions formed over the previous years.

Parents are welcome to attend and the representatives are ready and willing to answer any questions.

A list of college and universities in attendance and the rotation schedule will be sent the week of the fair.

Once again, I want to thank you for your support.
