Blair will hold its first annual "Making It Count" presentation on March 23 in an effort to provide seniors with information about opportunities after they graduate.
The program, which was designed by Monster.com, is free as long as the school can guarantee a minimum participation of 100 students. During the assembly, students will hear from a guest speaker and take part in numerous interactive activities. Through these activities, students will learn how to interview for employment and receive tips for success in college. Monster.com also provides booklets to augment the live activities.
Vice Principal Linda Wolf, who requested the assembly, was drawn to it by its popularity in the 15 area schools that have done it in the past. Wolf says that the assembly will be useful for seniors who are unsure about their plans after they graduate. "It's about transitioning from high school to the real world," she said.
The assembly, which will be held in the auditorium, will start at 7:30 a.m. Students are expected to check in with their first-period teachers before the assembly.
