PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPECIFIC GRADE LEVELS.
For Middle School
Between December and early spring, all middle school students are participating in career or self-exploration workshops through the guidance office. 6th and 8th graders will be completing an online career interest inventory and participating in a discussion of how to get information about careers that relate to their interests. 7th graders will be taking a survey that helps them better understand their own personal learning style. The results of these inventories will be saved for them to reflect on when they work on their Personalized Learning Plans.
For Grades 9-12
