The 7th Annual College Fair at Wappingers Junior High School took place today, April 8th. Eight graders were provided with opportunities as part of a three-part workshop to begin to think about and make decisions for their futures. Students had the opportunity to discuss programs and ask questions with representatives from many local colleges, universities and the armed forces. They also received a powerful message in a presentation with Mike Roe, Associate Dean from Dutchess Community College. Finally the students had time to reflect on their experience in classrooms with their teachers. The day provided an outstanding experience for the 8th graders as they begin to transition to High School. Principal Thompson, Corsano & Anderson would like to thank Mr. Nostrand for putting on the annual event. The Administration would also like to thank Superintendent Carrion, the Central Office Staff, and Trustees of the Board of Education for supporting these events for the WJHS Community.
