Other Important BSA Updates:

We ended the week on a fantastic note! Today, 9/30 during 4th and 5th Period, BSA hosted our first Career Exploration Fair of the school year! A big thank you to Ms. Bellony, our wonderful Work Based Learning Coordinator for being instrumental in making this event come to fruition!

Our Goals of this fair were simple, we aimed to:

  • Expose students to a variety of careers and jobs by connecting them with business partners
  • Provide a realistic picture of the workplace
  • Help students make the connection between school and the workplace
  • Inform career/post-secondary planning

We believe we succeeded in reaching these goals as we had several career representatives join us today! Check out our Instagram linked here to take a peek!
