College and Career Month

Las Flores Middle School - Edition 2

College and Career Fair Trifold Poster Contest

Students are invited to participate in our College and Career Fair Contest. Think of it as a Science fair but the project research is to center on either a college or a career choice. See the attached flyer for more contest details by clicking here. For more tips and hints follow this link as well. Students will need to provide their own presentation board similar to those shown in the photos below.

Students - Sign Up for Your Preferred Career Day Speakers!

All students must sign up for career day speakers. Students will list their top five preferred speakers to listen to on Career Day. Students will be assigned three speakers. We will do our best to ensure all students hear speakers they want to hear, but please be flexible if you do not get the speaker you want. Students will find out what speaker sessions they will attend on Friday November 18th during Pride. If you have not yet signed up for your preferred speakers, click here to follow the link.
