EE – Big Break

  • No Big Break this week
  • Thank you to everyone who has signed up to drive. We still need drivers for future dates!  Please go to SignUp Genius, look to see which dates your student is attending, and if you see an open spot, please sign up! If we don’t have drivers, we can’t take the students! 
Other Important Information

Mock Interviews: February 27th (8:30~9:30)  Thank you to Mr. Tam, Mr. Cruz, Mrs. Pope, Mr. Surney, Mrs. Carrillo, and Mrs. Bordges for volunteering to “interview” the students.  If you would like to help, please let us know!  The more volunteers we have, the less students everyone needs to interview plus the students will receive more one on one time too!

Internships: March 16-18th.  Students do not come to school, but go to their internship/job shadow for these 3 days.  See attached documents for more information.
