Hello Hilliard parents and students, I hope you are having a wonderful summer! I was asked if I would be willing share some insight into my experiences of getting into college now that I’ve gotten through the whole application and admission process.

Seventh grade students at Weaver Middle School were able to interact with bionic research during a language arts class. The bionic research is directly connected to the novel Freak the Mighty, being read by all seventh grade middle school students in Hilliard. Lynsay Whelan from Touch Bionics in Columbus demonstrated different bionic prosthesis. The students were able to connect their fictional reading to a real-world application. Empowering students to connect the dots between different curriculums helps prepare them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
