College Recruiting Information Session

The road to college for athletes is no longer lined with traditional mile markers. It used to be that batting averages, points per game or yards per carry paved the way for sports stars. Nowadays, one more percentage is carrying more and more weight. It’s called the grade point average.
The days of athletes dreaming to “Be Like Mike” and parents’ dreams of having it pay for an education and a lucrative future for their child-student-athlete have vastly changed over the last generation or so. In fact, there is a lot more work to hitting a home run than just hitting home runs.
A seminar to prepare parents and athletes for the recruiting road ahead — complete with all its bumps — will be held on Monday March 10th, 2014 at Big Spring High School. “Guiding the College-Bound Athlete” will provide information and topics for every student-athlete in middle and high school and their parents to educate and prepare them for opportunities and careers after graduation. Many student-athletes who aspire to play at the college level are not familiar with the ins and outs of academic requirements and eligibility as they need to be in order to pursue their goals.
The ARC of Cumberland & Perry counties is hosting its 16th annual "Journey Through Special Education Seminar" on March 29th, 2014.
This is a great conference on special education topics for both parents and educators.

Join us in support of Big Spring High School's 2014 Class Charities, a project sponsored by the Leadership Development class. Throughout the 2013-14 school year, each graduating class has been raising money to support these student-selected charities:
- Seniors, Class of 2014: American Cancer Society
- Juniors, Class of 2015: Make-a-Wish Foundation
- Sophomores, Class of 2016: Wounded Warrior Project
- Freshmen, Class of 2017: Homes for Our Troops
The race will be held on April 5 at 9:30 AM on the Big Spring Cross Country Course. Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to come out for exercise, fun, fresh air, and the satisfaction of supporting a good cause. However, no pets are allowed due to school district policy. The fee to register is $15 for students and $20 for all others, with all proceeds benefiting the charity of the participant's choice. Pre-registration guarantees a t-shirt, but no t-shirts will be assured for same day registrants, so be sure to pre-register by March 28.
