Middle School Career and Academy Day

career day    On Tuesday, March 14th and Wednesday, March 15th Union County’s Career and Technical Education hosted a Career Connections day for all 8th grade students in the county. This is an annual event that is presented every year. These students had the opportunity to tour many different program areas and academies that are offered across the county at all of our high schools. Our own Parkwood students and teachers, as well as many from other high schools spent time with our 8th graders explaining and demonstrating all the diverse programs and academies that we have to offer in UCPS. Additionally, SPCC and UNCC, among many other businesses and higher education schools were also present to help support the day. All UCPS middle schools participated in this event. Parkwood is proud of our student and teacher volunteers for assisting in this important day!
