ALPENA, Mich. — Eighth graders and high school students are already planning for the next school year. Alpena High School helped them explore opportunities at Wednesday’s Course Fair.
Band performers ushered in students as they walked into the gym to complete their fall schedules. Each department placed items or posters on display for students, and teachers shared the types of core and elective classes students could choose.
Jessica Pilarksi helped spearhead the fair.
“The opportunities that students have today is different than in previous years,” says Pilarski. “There’s a lot more options available to them whether it’s project based learning…foreign languages, visual and performing arts — there’s just so much to offer.”
Current freshman Taylor Lasak says she’s excited to take art class next year. She believes the Course Fair is giving her the freedom to choose classes that express her creativity.
