Season’s Greetings,

EXPL Careers Students 6th Grade

Students are working on their Futures 2000+ Grant Application. This application has been downloaded on to the student’s computers. Next week we will be continuing to work on the grant applications. Each student who completes a grant application will have their application submitted to the committee, and if their grant is accepted the student will have the opportunity to go to the designated location to learn as much as they can about the career. The application is due on Friday, December 13th. Students are encouraged to submit the grant on Schoology to have me proofread it and return it with any possible suggestions they can make.

Careers 7th & 8th Grade

Students are going to continue their final project for the semester. The project if the Unemployed Elf. All the necessary information and templates are available on Schoology. This project is intended for the students to do creative writing. The students have been working in class on this, and next week they will have class time to work on it as well. The project is due Friday, December 13th. Any part of the project they are not able to finish in class will need to be completed at home.
