9th Grade Job Interviews, Lagoon, 7th Grade PCCR’s

Parents/Guardians of 9th Grade Students –

This Thursday is our Mock Job Interview Activity. Your student has the opportunity to be interviewed by a member of the community, during their Language Arts class, to prepare them for their future experiences. Please remind them to dress in business attire and to bring a PRINTED copy of their resume with them on Thursday. We look forward to this being a great activity. Thank you to all of those who have volunteered!
