We are beginning what we anticipate will be another successful Jr. ACT-SO Program for 2017-18. We are encouraging parents whose child was in the program last year to register their child for this year’s program if the student is in the 7th or 8th grade. We also need ACT-SO and DuPage County NAACP members to tell their friends and associates about Jr. ACT-SO. We have found that “word of mouth” has proven to be a more effective student recruitment tool than a recruitment flier.
We look forward to seeing parents and students at the September 16, 2017 Registration and Orientation Meeting at Glenbard South High School (23W200 Butterfield Road, Glen Ellyn, Il) in Room 308 from 12:00 – 1:30 PM, if the student has not been registered and/or the parent has not attended a Registration and Orientation Meeting. The first Jr. ACT-SO Student Enrichment Meeting will also be held the same day from 2:00 – 5:00 PM.
In addition; we are still looking for volunteer team coaches and technical mentors. Please contact John Pritchard (630) 904-4599 or Mrs. Leslie Ford (312) 399-3077 if you would like to volunteer or would like more information about these volunteer positions.
