The 7th Grade Skinny

October 12th

Quote of the Week

"Interviewing adults is so much fun!" -a 7th grade student (no, really)

When your 7th grader comes home talking about who they interviewed and you don't know what they are talking about....

Let me give you the scoop! Last week marked the beginning of the 7th grade service-learning experience: the 7th Grade Intern Program. To begin this new program, students emailed every single faculty and staff member in order to set up a formal interview about what he or she does at MJS. Students learned email etiquette and strategies for good interviews. We practiced handshakes, smiling, coming prepared and saying thank you!


The next step will give students the opportunity to create resumes and apply to intern for faculty and staff members of their choice.


Stay tuned for more information!

Do students have school on Wednesday October 21st?
