We will be giving mock job interviews for the Interact Students. If you would like to sign up for this please let Peg or Nancy know.

There wil be a session at 11:15-12 and a session from 12:15 -1

You will need to have a valid ID and sign in at the front office.

We were unable to complete the mock interviews for Interact a couple of

weeks ago because of the snow delay for the schools. We are going to try
again to do them next Monday, March 2. Please let Peg know if you can help
out for one or both lunch hours. Interact meetings are from 11:15-12:00
and 12:15-1:00 in Room 106 at the high school.

Thanks, Peg.
