National Career Month
November is National Career Month! Greenville County Schools is dedicated to building better graduates and Fountain Inn Elementary wants to help prepare students for the future as well. Graduation Plus is a Greenville County Schools Initiative to help students be college and career ready when they leave High School. Students are able to earn college credits and/or technical certifications to be able to step into the workplace upon graduation.
Please help us with the family project attached below. Have a conversation with your child about their future career interests. If they are not sure, ask them what their current interests are and then help them find a job that matches those interests. Student can go to https://ww.vaview.vt.edu/k5/check-it/kids-search/ to search for and learn more about possible career opportunities. ON THIS SHEET, please have your student choose a career and research the education necessary for that job. The students will then finish with drawing a picture of themselves in that career. We look forward to them sharing their dreams and aspirations with us! Thank you for your help in supporting them with this project!
Mrs. Reese has set up a Remind 101 account for parents to stay informed about events at Fountain Inn. Look out for information in your child's folder, or ask your child's teacher for the code. Never miss another event!
