Underclassmen Plan Future with Project ARIES

Brandon Lane, Reporter

With only a few months into the school year, it is that time again when underclassmen need to start planning their futures. Project ARIES is a week-long event where students sit in on a Career Day, wade through a Curriculum Fair, and decide what courses they plan to take next school year.

Career Day gave students opportunities to sit in on different careers in their interested pathways. Teachers hosted 30 guest speakers who presented five half-hour sessions to groups of students.

Celeste Harrington, freshman, said that she enjoyed the lawyer/attorney guest speaker because she provided useful information regarding her job and what is required to achieve it.

“Some sessions gave out free stuff so that I liked,” said Angel Almaden, freshman.

Senior Michelle Manuel said that she got chocolates and pens from her career speakers.

On Wednesday’s Curriculum Fair departments filled the gymnasium with information about their classes while electives worked to recruit for their courses.

“I’m signing up for culinary because I want to learn more about cooking, but I would like to see more electives offered related to the medical field,” said freshman Rovee  Corpuz.

“I’m looking forward to Drivers’ Ed because I’m so excited to start driving,” said Dylan Frank, freshman.
