  • Career Day is on the morning of November 10th! 

On Career Day, students will be able to speak to community professionals about their careers and educational path and have the opportunity to participate in a mock interview. During fall break, make time to talk with your student about their interests and dreams for their career and future. We also invite all students to “Dress for Success” on Career Day!  Please help your student identify what they can wear on this day to feel confident and comfortable as if they were going on an interview.
