"Patriots Leading" Job Shadowing Day - In partnership with the ELA Department, the School Counseling Department of Southwest Middle School invites you and your child to participate in the “Patriot Leading” Job Shadow Day on February 2, 2018. It is our goal as a department to implement various opportunities that will enable our students to begin exploring the plethora of careers that will be available to them. We’re striving for this goal with hopes that subsequent to completing their secondary/post-secondary academic studies, they will be able to effectively apply the knowledge they gained throughout the matriculation. Participating students will choose a career field in which they have interest, identify a role model he/she could shadow for the day, conduct some preliminary research in the career field, visit the job site (the absence will be excused), prepare a portfolio and share the experience through an electronic report.
