We are so excited about our upcoming College & Career Day on Wednesday, May 25th! We hope you will consider signing up to share about your career and/or college with our students! Each grade level has their own Sign Up with different time slots to present to individual classes (Pre-K is a little different). You are welcome and encouraged to sign up for multiple classes/grade levels. If you feel like your presentation would be beneficial for a larger group than just one class, please email Sarah Burey at Also, if you are unable to attend in person but would like to create and send a short video, you can email it to Sarah. The deadline to sign up is Friday, May 20th.
