We are excited to present our third Parents As Career Coaches (PACC) Workshop.
PACC is a free evening workshop for parents of middle and secondary students happening on
Monday, Oct. 22, 6:30 – 9:30 pm, Richmond Elementary Gym.
PACC workshops have been happening all over the lower mainland for the last four years.
Marion Haythorne has been leading these workshops, helping parents assist their children make educational decisions and career choices. Through a variety of interactive exercises, parents explore their own values, interests and skills. Then, they can go home and do these same exercises with their children, help them discover their values, interests and skills, and match them to potential education and career pathways.
Our first CORE block is coming up tomorrow!, Wednesday (Sept 19) , and it will affect all of our students. Please note the following:
1. The block will run next Wednesday from 8:28 to 9:48. Following this block, ALL students will go to their Block A classes.

4. All CORE activities are a part of the new Career Life Education curriculum, which is required for graduation. Attendance is MANDATORY. Failure to attend will result in having to do makeup assignments. All students should bring a pencil or pen with them.
5. This is our first year rolling out our Career Life Ed course, but the planning process began in 2016. There are a number of exciting new initiatives taking place in the Careers realm at our school, and at the district level.
