National tribute to the Eight Track

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- It's a bygone music format, yet the plastic tape cartridge known as the eight track is still selling.

The eight track emerged in the late 1960's. The bulky tapes often wore out quickly, but it was the best way to listen to music on the go.

"Back in the day, it was the way to go for music. There was nothing else as far as having a tape, so everybody went with it," says Dan Spoelman, who used eight tracks during the 70's.

Many eight track players are finding new homes, with people born well after its hey day.

"It doesn't have the same warmth as a record, but there's still something about that tape format, it was still a bit different from cassette," says John Tremblay of Kalamazoo.

Some, who experienced eight tracks when there were popular, have other thoughts about the long forgotten format.

GMS - Explore Test

GMS - Explore Test

From: http://www.grandville.k12.mi.us

There will be several special events happening at GMS during the morning of April 11. The 8th grade students will be taking the EXPLORE test and our 7th grade students will be participating in a team-building/ anti-bullying program presented by Christy Buck and her team.

The EXPLORE test has previously been given at the High School 9th grade students but GMS is providing the test this year. EXPLORE helps students identify academic strength and weakness in four academic areas, English, Math, Reading, and Science, important for success in College and the workplace. Since EXPLORE is a curriculum based test, EXPLORE scores show the knowledge and skills that students are likely to have in each of these areas. Additionally, students will go thru a career interest inventory.
