JA Jobspark allows Middle school students to learn through hands-on experiences about a multitude of careers
This week, Warren Township was able to take 8th grade students throughout the township to one of the most powerful field trips these students will ever experience. Students were able to attend the annual Junior Achievement JobSpark event at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Through this event, students were able to learn about exciting jobs and industries previously unfamiliar to them and experience hands on demonstrations as to what these careers have to offer. Walker Career Center staff is able to capitalize on this event by allowing middle school students to learn potential career pathways prior to selecting their high school courses. To learn more about this extraordinary event, check out a segment done by Justin Hicks on Twitter (below) or check out #JAJobSparkIndy on social media.

Business law students get to observe court proceedings
Students in the Business Law and Ethics program were able to visit the City County Building to observe court proceedings this week.

They were able to observe several situations in the courts that involved issues and vocabulary learned in Chapters 3, 4 and 5 on Courts, Criminal Law and Civil law respectively. Following the court sessions, one of the Judges had a question/answer session with the students. To learn more about Business Law and Ethics program, please contact Mrs. Williams or Mrs. Burns.
