Recent 8th Grade PACERS events:
04-03-14: We are back in action for the 4th quarter! From the sounds of it, EJHS, TMLC, and WJHS students all managed to enjoy their time off by spending it with friends, family, and pets! We began our meetings this week by discussing the upcoming PACERS events! There are many exciting trips and activities to look forward to this quarter! The students then had the opportunity to complete a career interest survey based on Career Choice Theory. From the survey, the students were able to see how their interests might align well with certain career paths. After completing the surveys, we had a group discussion about the importance of exploring different career options and how high school success is crucial to achieving career goals.
