Worlds of Opportunity

 

The 8th grade Worlds of Opportunity field trip will be held on Thursday, September 19 from 9 AM until 1:45 PM. This is a FREE field trip, only a completed permission slip is needed. We will attend the Worlds of Opportunity Career Expo at the Mobile Civic Center and on the way home will stop at the Spanish Fort Town Center "Fort" to eat a sack lunch under the covered pavilion. We will be back in time to get ready for and participate in the Pep Rally. 

Students will receive a permission slip in 7th period class today. It is also attached and available on the school website. Students should turn in their permission slips to their homeroom teacher starting tomorrow. Students must bring the permission slip in no later that Tuesday, September 17 at 8 AM to participate. (Lunches and busses must be finalized by noon on Tuesday for us to participate on Thursday.)

WHAT IS WORLDS OF OPPORTUNITY?

A project of the Southwest Alabama Workforce Development Council (SAWDC), the SAWDC Worlds of Opportunity is a hands-on career expo for eighth-grade students across Southwest Alabama’s nine-county footprint. The purpose of the event is to expose students to careers available locally and to demonstrate what each career involves through an interactive, engaging series of activities. The decision to target eighth-grade students was a strategic one: Eighth grade is a critical year for students as they are deciding on coursework pathways for the remainder of their high school years and beyond.
