The Shiawassee Regional Education Service District invites you and your child to attend an informational meeting if your child scores in the top 10 to 15 percent of their grade as they may qualify for academically talented educational programs. The meeting will be 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Baker College Welcome Center, 1309 S. M-52, Owosso.

“We encourage parents and students in grades six, seven and eight to attend this informational meeting to learn how SAT testing can benefit them, Shiawassee Scholars, other available gifted and talented programs, and how to register for the SAT test held in January at Owosso Middle School,” it was stated. “The top 50 eighth-grade students in the county who achieve at the highest level as determined by their scores on the SAT will be invited to become Shiawassee Scholars!

The Shiawassee Scholars program is a collaborative program between the Shiawassee RESD and The Cook Family Foundation.

“The program recognizes academically talented students early and seeks to encourage these students to continue to pursue academically challenging activities during their high school years. It is the mission of the Shiawassee Scholars program to assist these students through various opportunities, resources and support to reach their full potential.”

For any questions, persons may contact their School Counselor or Renee Dotson, (989) 743-3471.
