We Need Your Help for 8th Grade Career Day and Real Life Fair

8th Grade Career Day and Real Life Fair

February 4th from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm

 

Hello Parents!

The count down for the 8th Grade Career Day and Real Life Fair is on and we images-7are looking for a few more volunteers!  Many parents shy away from this event because they think that they need a slick presentation or because they have been out of the work force for a while.  Please don’t let this stop you from volunteering!  We need bodies for the Real Life Fair – this is the area of the program where the kids try to balance a budget – “Do I have enough money to buy a house or should I rent for a while?  How much money do I spend on clothes?  Will I have enough money to eat this month?”  Let’s face it, we can all remember when all we had to eat was mac and cheese for an entire month.   We also need help with setup and with conducting mock interviews. 

Pease click here to volunteer.  The top portion of the document is to volunteer for the Career Fair portion of the program.  The bottom portion is to volunteer for the Real Life portion of the program, set up, and interviews.  Come join us and hang out with the kids!  It is really alot of fun to watch them in action!

We are also looking to recruit a few parents of 6th and 7th graders – your time is coming!

If you have any trouble signing up, please just reply to this e-mail. 

The 8th Grade Teachers and your RRMS PTO

Thank you to Our Volunteers.

And a big thank you to Inge Barbee who spear-headed the event and worked very hard to make it the Graveyard Smash that it was.

Special Presentation! Substance Use and Abuse with Youth.

Although the PTO does not officially endorse this event, we feel it’s important to share this information with our community. The WL Community Collaboration for Drug Free Youth is hosting this special presentation that is open to adults only.

The media will be present, as will several distinguished members of the professional community  to present information on this extremely important topic and answer questions. This is not limited to high school parents only. It is open to ANY adult who would like to go.
