Career Research and Decision Making is a valuable course for 8th Grade students. Each student will research their individual interests for future careers and look into the requirements to reach their goals. Planning for a career starts now because soon they will enroll in high school classes that will be required for college or technical careers. I hope the students enjoy this time of discovery. I will do whatever I can to assist them in their journey.

Chapter Reading Guides
Students will fill in the Reading Guides during class discussion. These Reading Guides will serve as study guides for the Chapter, Unit, and End of Course tests. Please do not throw them away. Students should focus on memorizing vocabulary as well. The Reading Guides are attached as .pdf documents.
I have attached a .pdf document with directions on how to set up your account. Please follow them carefully. It's important that you set up your login and password the prescribed way. Once you have set up your account, you need to complete the two assessments.

Career Expo- Friday, April 8th
All 8th grade students will participate in the upcoming Career Expo on Friday, April 8th. Students will explore different careers and talk to many business professionals in the gym that morning from 8:20-12:20. Students come to school dressed professionally and bring their 8th grade t-shirt to change into with a pair of shorts or jeans and comfortable shoes for the afternoon activities. They will not need to bring their backpacks. Please contact Mrs. Paxton if you would like to volunteer to help with this event or if you have any questions.
