College Career Day @ SPMS - All Grades

This was a great opportunity for all grades to learn about College and Employment opportunities.  Many of our parents and community leaders joined in to present information about the types of jobs they have.  South Pasadena High School Seniors spoke about what to expect and what helped them.  Ask your students what they learned.
