Letter to WCMS Parents regarding Career and Academic Counseling
WCMS 7th graders will explore what inspires a career path during the inaugural Career Exploration sessions. The first Career Café session is Monday, October 16th and it starts off with a bang; Dee Schools from the Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue Services will share her journey and inspiration in the world of firefighting and saving lives. Please share in the excitement with the 7th graders as they embark on their journey in the World of Work! This is a chance for the 7th graders to meet with local employers in the high demand fields, declare their career interests with the school counselors for the Academic and Career Plans, engage with hands on opportunities in various professions at the Wow! Expo (see link below), and view a digital marketing introduction to the Blue Ridge Tech Center for an idea on how to obtain an industry credential by the time they graduate from high school. This is an exciting time for WCPS and local employers to foster innovative partnerships which impact the next generation of professionals.
