College and Career Day
On Friday, March 30th, 2018 from 8:30am to 10:30am, our school will be having “College Career Day.” On this day, we need volunteers to speak with students in grade K-5 about their college and/or careers. We would like the students to hear about different careers and understand the relevance of academic learning to the tasks they might someday perform in the working world. It is a great experience for the students of North Metro Academy of Performing Arts to learn and explore the many different careers that exist in our community!
In preparation for this exciting day, we need to know if you would be willing to come to our school and talk about your career for about 15 minutes per class. Here are some of the things you can discuss in your presentation:
The education/training required for your field.
What a typical day in your career is like.
What character traits are required for your field?
Feel free to bring props, souvenirs, uniforms, etc.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me or email me. We truly appreciate you for your generosity. We could not do this without you! Thank you on behalf of the staff and students of North Metro Academy of Performing Arts.
Inclement Weather Make Up Days
In January, we learned about exhibiting citizenship. Please continue to speak with your child about obeying and following the rules, in order to make our school and community a better place. Our character trait for February is to be considerate. We show consideration by being thoughtful about the feelings and needs of others. Encourage your child to participate in the weekly character challenge and:
Show consideration by stopping to let others pass in the hallway when needed.
Show consideration by asking your parents how their day went.
Show consideration by keeping shared areas clean.
Show consideration by allowing others to learn in a distraction free environment.
Thanks so much! Let’s make it a great February.
