As discussed in our last Skylert, there is no Wally Time lesson this week. Instead, teachers are making a concerted effort to take the things your students told us made them feel welcome and apply those during the week this week. Next week, we’re going to flip the conversation and have students look at what they can do to make other students feel welcome in the school.
8th Grade Job Shadow – Tuesday, November 9th, 2021
As part of our career exploration program, 8th grade students will have the opportunity to participate in a Job Shadow experience on Tuesday, November 9th. This is a chance to take your student to work with you or send them to work with someone you know. It is our hope that you will share your excitement for your profession with your child or that they will have the opportunity to study a career of interest. If your student pre-arranges a job shadow experience, and they complete the required forms, they will be excused from school on this day. Encourage your student to think about a career area they are interested in. Students that don’t arrange a job shadow are expected to be in school on this day. Parents are responsible to provide transportation to the job shadow. More information will be provided but please start thinking about options that your student might be interested in.
