7th and 8th Grade: ConnectionJRG Middle School Career Planning 

What does Career Planning look like at our Middle School?

Throughout their time at J.R. Gerritts Middle School, students will have a variety of opportunities to thoughtfully consider who they are as people and how that relates to future career options.

Students will utilize Xello each Tuesday during TLC (homeroom) to engage in career-related exploration. Students will complete interest inventories, career research, set academic and personal goals and do reflections with the support of their TLC teacher.

Students will be exposed to a variety of hands-on experiences to help them begin narrowing the focus of possible career options.

Questions about your child's Career Planning experiences? Contact your child's TLC teacher or school counselor.

Below you will find the Career Planning experiences for students in 7th & 8th grade.
