Career Week at Portola

posted Mar 30, 2014, 10:47 PM by Andrew Hyman
Dear 8th Grade Parents, 
This is Career Week at Portola Middle School where 8th grade students have been exploring how their interests and talents relate to their future.  Your 8th grade student has been given a Work Exploration Checklist and has visited the computer lab to learn about careers that match his or her interests.  The students also did a reality check to see if the careers they picked fit the lifestyle they want to lead. This is a wonderful opportunity to have a discussion with your child about your career and educational path.   
On Friday, March 28th, we will have speakers from the community who will visit the history classes to share their career path.  I hope this experience will help guide them with the choices they need to make in high school and college.
