Education briefs for Nov. 2, 2013: CNCC to offer Taste of Education

— Taste of Education is an introductory event for those considering enrolling in college classes but unsure of how to get started, what subjects they want to study or have other concerns. In addition to workshops, seminars and classes throughout the day, anyone attending also receives a free lunch, door prizes and information about scholarships.

Those with small children also can receive referrals for baby-sitting.

No school for Moffat County elementary students Friday

A workday is scheduled for elementary teachers Friday, meaning the kids of Craig’s East, Ridgeview, Sandrock and Sunset elementary schools will have a three-day weekend.

The students of the Maybell School also will have the day off from classes.

ACT, SAT exams offered for Craig students in coming months

Students needing to take the ACT and SAT exams can register online at www.actstudent.org for the ACT and www.collegeboard.org for the SAT. Both sites also provide information for those taking the tests, including necessary supplies, documentation and other details.

The designated testing center for Craig is Moffat County High School, but students should consult the sites to determine which testing centers will be available on certain dates.

Both tests are offered multiple times throughout the school and both have regular deadlines and late deadlines, the latter of which involves a fee.
