Weekly Update 8/5/22

  • Junior Achievement Day 

Tuesday this week was JA Day! Junior Achievement Volunteers from KPMG worked with all grades on work readiness and soft skills. The students completed their own brag sheet and learned interviewing skills. Our team of teachers rounded out the day with Learning Styles, Career Clusters, and Mindset activities. Ask your student what their takeaway was from JA Day!

 

Moore Square Business Alliance is a partnership between business, community, and school leaders committed to educating each student to be a responsible and productive citizen who can effectively manage future challenges. Through the support, dedication, and commitment of our volunteers, we are able to provide a variety of opportunities to our students that help them understand the skills needed to become successful in their future.  Business Alliance members assist with career days, practice job interviews, field trips, site tours, guest speaking, and life skill programs such as Reality of Money.

During the 2021-22 school year, our community engagement and career development experiences included 7000 student contacts with over 500 community volunteers. These experiences included off-site learning experiences, classroom guest speakers, and participation SECU Reality of Money, and in NCBCE Students@Work program.
