The Atlanta Public Schools Annual “College & Career Spirit Week” consists of various opportunities for students to be exposed to a variety of careers and post secondary institutes of higher learning. Students have the opportunity to create resumes, explore their teachers’ alma maters, and hear from representatives from various universities, colleges and vocational schools. This exciting week also includes a district-wide contest that measures how each school promoted this event and showed spirit.
Parks Middle School took home the honor of winning 1st prize in the APS “College & Career Spirit Week”. The trophy and $300 prize was given by Brene’ Bradley, Project Coordinator for College & Career Readiness and was accepted by Mrs. Latarsha Mills Mckie, Guidance Counselor who led Parks to victory. The prize money will be used to provide more opportunities to expose the students to College & Career readiness. All staff participated to show the love of their colleges and universities. Congratulations to Parks Middle School!
