Our College and Career Ready Day was held on Wednesday, October 19th. Staff members and students donned college t-shirts and sweatshirts and some students dressed up as their career of choice. Over 30 parents and community members spent time visiting the classrooms and speaking to students about their careers and the skills required. Students prepared questions for the guest speakers following their presentations. The Guidance Counselors in their classroom guidance lessons talked about the importance of thinking ahead to the future and using POP (Perseverance, Ownership and Practice) to achieve their goals. Classroom teachers had a variety of fun, career-related activities for students throughout the day. It was a very busy but wonderful CCR Day at Matthew Thornton School.
