Biztown Interviews This Thursday!!!

This is a reminder that our Biztown interviews will be this Thursday, May 5th. Please have your child come to school dressed professionally (they may bring a change of clothes for after their interview).

Students should have the 5 interview questions in their book bags – we will do mock interviews here at school, but we also encourage you to help your child by practicing their interview questions at home. It is also a good idea to have them practice introducing themselves and doing a proper handshake. Students may write their answers on an index card and bring the card to their interview on Thursday.
