Career day is on May 18th.

The letter for the speakers is attached to this e-mail.

Below is the link where they can fill out their volunteer form and have their background check completed before May 18th.

This needs to be done every school year, so every volunteer needs to do it even if they did it last year.


Please make sure you enter your guest speakers' information in the google sheet using the link below.

If the link does not work when you click on it copy and paste it in the address window.



Please remember that for 15 minutes during breakfast ALL students in ALL contents should be writing. We are providing you with prompts, but you are free to use your own. The purpose is to get students comfortable getting their ideas on paper and in a routine of sharing their written work. Please make time for some share-outs!

We would love feedback on how this is going and how we can make it better!
