WorkKeys for Seniors is this Thursday

Thank you to so many of you who have been talking about the WorkKeys with our Seniors and preparing them for this week's test.


If you need a "refresher" on the test, all of the resources from last semester's training are on Canvas. (Professional Learning course > Modules > WorkKeys).
