Where Will Orchard View Students Go After High School? | Events
May 1 is a big day across the state and nation in the college admissions process. It’s the day by which seniors nationwide declare what they want to do with their futures and decide where they will go after high school.
Orchard View High School is hosting its first-ever Decision Day Bash to celebrate the Senior Class of 2012 making this important decision to achieve greatness by either attending college, trade school or enlisting into the armed services.
“We are extremely proud of what the senior class has accomplished in terms of making their college and military goals a reality,” said Kristen Washburn, college adviser. “This is a great opportunity to show them that we’re proud of them, as well as continue to create a college-going culture within our community. The younger classes will be at the assembly, so hopefully it will spark a desire in them to be up on that stage someday, being celebrated for their decisions.”
The Orchard View Decision Day Celebration 2012 will take place on May 1. There will be an assembly from 9:00-10:00 a.m. to recognize the spring sports teams, juniors who scored above the state average on the ACT, and seniors who have made a decision as to what college they’re attending next year. Once school lets out at 12:25, college-bound seniors are invited to a picnic at Norman Kruse (Bronson) park in Muskegon. Parents and administrators will be grilling burgers and brats for the students.
