    Dear Dragon Community,

    We have an exciting week ahead with our Career Week from November 18-22.  There are over 60 different career professionals taking time from their work week to speak to our students about their pathway to where they are now.  It is an eclectic group of professionals and I feel every student should be able to sit in one or two different career panels. Please encourage your student to learn about what possibilities are out there for them.  Of course, we live in a time where some jobs have not yet been developed and so options for them are a plenty. Our students are dynamic, thoughtful and creative. This gives us "old folks" hope that our future will continue to look bright. 

     

    Our semester is winding down, please continue to look at PowerSchool and ask your student if they are keeping track of assignments, tests and quizzes.  As we near final exams, I encourage study groups, reviewing practice exams from the textbook or working with their teacher during A+.

     

    Thank you for your continued support.

     

     

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Solorzano
