The 7th grade students are visiting the computer lab with their Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Hodge, this month to learn about and research careers related to their interests. The students are learning about the Holland Code and how our interests and personality types can lead us to a particular career. Students have been sharing stories of what careers they are interested in now compared to when they were young children. It's always fun to compare and see if our interests change over time or remain the same! Students are reminded that the career search is a process that takes place over many years and it is ok to be uncertain now of what they will be doing beyond college. Exploring our interests through interest inventories, career searches, joining clubs, and choosing different courses and electives in high school will all help to narrow down which career path we take. The students are exploring careers using the Career Zone website and the My Next Move website. Click the buttons below to do your own career research!

Valentine's Day Made Special by the Big Sister-Little Sister Club
The Big Sister-Little Sister Club is a cross-building mentoring and friendship program for MacArthur High School girls to act as role models to Salk Middle School girls offering self-esteem activities and games. For Valentine's Day, the BSLS Club created a kindness project whereby they created "happy notes" and posted them on student lockers at Salk. The goal was for the middle school students to see them on Valentine's Day morning and bring a smile to their day, as well as, for them to continue to pass forward heartfelt words or deeds throughout their day and everyday. The club is run by Mrs. Philips, school counselor, Mrs. Lyons, school counselor, and Mrs. Miceli, social worker.
