Northwest’s Senior Exploration Day is coming up Wednesday, October 11th. Seniors will have the opportunity to visit a college / trade school / vocational school or job shadow during Wednesday, October 11th instead of coming to school. We are encouraging all students to take advantage of this and have an excused absence from school that day. Students are responsible for contacting their college / vocational school or company for the job shadow and setting up these visits themselves. You should be contacting your post-secondary school (college or trade school) or a person you would like to job shadow now to set up a visit for Wednesday, Oct 11th

  • job shadow
  • college visit
  • trade / vocational school visit

Students will be excused for the day as long as they return the permission form signed by parent / guardian.  Students who have NOT turned in a signed permission slip and do not come to school on Wednesday, October 11th will be marked as unexcused absence. Paper permission forms will be distributed through seminar classes on Tuesday, September 26th and need parent signature.  The last day to turn in permission forms is Tuesday, October 10th.

Those students who come to campus instead will have the opportunity to meet with Ms. Stewart, our College Advisor, and work on their college applications, scholarship applications and resumes.  

Forms are due back signed to your seminar teacher, or the Student Services box by Lisa Jones' desk by Tuesday, October 10th.  Questions? Please email your academic counselor.
