Monday, November 23rd & Tuesday, November 24th

Lesher 8th graders are being given an amazing opportunity to start exploring future careers AND learn more about high school & college options!  Both days begin with guest speaker panels in the Viking Performing Arts Center.  MONDAY we will hear from professionals in careers such as health care manager, district attorney, realtor executive, avionics specialist, and nurse.  TUESDAY we will learn about various secondary and post secondary options by hearing from local experts regarding the Advanced Placement classes, the International Baccalaureate program, concurrent enrollment, 2 year college (FRCC) and 4 year college (CSU).  Students will be divided into two groups - one group will stay at Lesher and attend three sessions about future planning, the other group will be transported by PSD bus to two different businesses for a tour.  On the second day, the groups will swap so all students get to experience the informative sessions AND take the tours!

A BIG thank you to our speakers, the Workforce Center and the participating businesses!
