  •     A Parent Night will be held at Fisher High School on October 28, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the Fisher High School Library.    
        It will host all 10th - 12th grade parents and students. Parent Night is an opportunity for parents to learn more about the financial, social, and academic aspects of attending a post-secondary institution.    
        Topics during the evening include financial aid, FAFSA, ACT tests/scores, college applications, college visits, residential life and housing, as well as answering any questions parents may have.
    Background   
        Achieve More emerged from the regional IMPACT 20/20 Education Task Force's priority initiative to increase high school graduation rates and encourage more students, at an earlier age, to consider attending college. Launched in Fall 2012, the project is an effort among UMC's Center for Adult Learning (CAL).    
        Achieve More consists of two major components, College and Career Preparation 101, aimed at grades 7‐12, and Junior Achievement, which targets grades 2-6.
