Career Day, Chess & Transferable Life Skills

Hello, division 4 families!

On Friday our students enjoyed a dynamic “Career Day” event in the gym. We had four mystery professionals take the stage and students had the opportunity to ask “Yes/No” questions about the nature of their work until they amassed enough information to make good guesses about what each presenter’s job is. Then students got up close to the presentation booths of each profession to ask more questions and see the tools of their trades.

Today we had a wonderful first session with Mr. Churchill, an amazing Chess coach who led our class though our powerful first strategy and tactics session. We will now have the privilege of spending every Monday from 9am-10am in these chess lessons, which help students to sharpen their logical-reasoning skills and learn many transferable life skills.
