Registration opened yesterday for our Career Exploration Day on Wed. 11/15during Advisory. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of over 20 career paths offered. New this year, we will have a panel of engineers, law professionals, building trade professionals, and physicians. Hearinf from someone in a given profession is one of the best ways to understand if that field is right for you. Do not miss this opportunity!
On Tuesday we hosted our first Trade Career Expo. Nearly 55 students had the opportunity to tour our construction sites at Century Junior High and the high school. To help students understand the different trades and their respective career pathways, we had 14 trade representatives provide information to our students while they got to see the trade in action.
Our building trades are in need of employees. As a result, there are many excellect apprenticeship opportunities available to graduating seniors. Currently, we have an entire table in the College and Career Center dedicated to opportunities in the building trades. Additionally, please consider visiting Mrs. Bonnett in the College and Career Center to learn more.
October is College Knowledge Month. It's the time to plan, explore, and apply. All 10-12 graders should spend time during October to prepare for their post secondary step. We have a month filled with college visits and informative workshops during Ranger Hour. We'll be covering topics from how to write a college essay to conquering the common app to where do you look for scholarships. Take advantage of these opportunities.
October is also a time when additional colleges and universities will wave their application fee. The complete list is located here.
Remember, the College and Career Center is always available as another great resource.
