“…looks great and is more closely aligned with what students know rather than so much guessing on their part.”
-Judy Morin, teacher, Midland Jefferson Middle School

“The content of the questions is definitely appropriate for middle school students for the following reasons:
1. The questions emphasize the big ideas for middle school and early high school instruction, and will actually enhance what we are teaching in the classroom.
2. Students will actually be able to understand the meaning of the questions. Your wording of the questions is excellent, and the topics are appropriate.
3. The trivia-like questions that you include periodically would be interesting to middle schoolers.
-Jennifer Lenon, teacher, Midland Central Middle School

-Cynthia Thomas, teacher, Bay City Western Middle School

“Once again it was a wonderfully fantastic Head to Head Finals. The talent exhitibted in the acts was really impressive, and it made for a very entertaining show all night. I have to tell you once again our entire family came and watched most of the events. It is such a delight to see so many different kids show their many varied talents…it’s too infrequent that they get to ‘shine’ these talents. So often in our system sports gets so much attention. This program helps exhibit and hightlight so many other talents, which is just fantastic. We like to have our kids exposed to the many varied talents and opportunities out there, and this does it so well.”
– Dave and Angela Pasek, parents
