A few students video clips will be combined to create a video that will be shared in class and with our community. This will help us learn about and celebrate our school community.

This program is a part of our high school college-readiness program, Making Connections, and runs for two weeks in July to help introduce rising 9th/10th graders to various career paths and aid them in developing academic and professional skills.  

This year, the program will be held from July 11th – July 15th & July 18th – July 22nd from 11 am to 2 pm. As of now, we are planning a hybrid format with both online and in-person activities. These activities will provide students with the opportunity to explore different career opportunities by hearing and learning from real industry workers. In past years, we have visited offices such as Facebook, Google, Sound Transit, and Miller Hull Architecture. Our program has a particular focus on STEM paths but is open to all interested and curious students.
