We are excited to announce that we will have job shadowing for students again this year in partnership with the DOL and our Career Advisor Aly Salguero! Mrs. Salguero will be available to meet with students by drop-in on Wednesdays during lunch. Applications are available now in Counseling for students to complete. Most shadows require students to be 16 years old at the time of the shadow, but younger students are welcome to come and chat with Mrs. Salguero about opportunities in the future.
