career Day

Community 7/8 is hosting our first ever Pike Road School’s Career Day. This is a student organized project. Our tentative date is February 5th during school hours. The goal for Career Day is for students at Pike Road School to get a better understanding and to be inspired by possible career options. In the morning, we will have speakers who will share about their careers. If you are interested in sharing about your career, please click this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lmKGs9EOshDUpk-F2QJuzcVWLodathTnYR4YjyJnzEE/edit#gid=0 and share your information.


We are also looking for volunteer college students (not freshmen) or recent college graduates to speak at this event. They will share about college life and their major. If you are interested or know of college students who might be interested in being apart of this event, please click this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ud251D6ixBGAzcM4N6g8YPW59gorBtda3ZcJjZQAzJg/edit#gid=0 and share your information.
