College and Career Readiness Summer Activity

Helping our students think about college and career readiness is a great thing to do during the summer months. The Family Engagement Commission has found a really fun resource for students in grades 5-12 to use this summer AND they could win a $1,000 scholarship!

Take a few moments to learn more about this program and check out all the resources that Families in Schools has on this important topic: https://www.familiesinschools.org/passport-to-success-college-and-career-edition/
