5th Grade Career Portfolio
 April 30, 2019

Dear Parents,

As part of the Georgia Department of Education initiative to bring career awareness to elementary students, grade specific career awareness lessons and activities have been developed for grades 1-5.  In addition to the lessons and activities, all 5th grade students are required to complete a Career Portfolio.  Each student’s Career Portfolio will consist of a research essay and project.  The Career Portfolio provides students the opportunity to conduct research and present information about a career of interest.  This report will count as 25% of the student’s final Language Arts grade.

The research essay must be single spaced, double spaced between paragraphs using the 

Times New Roman size 12 font.  The project will consist of a power point presentation.

It is very important that you work with your child to complete the Career Portfolio.  Guidelines, sample essay with references, career cluster list, and a power point template can be accessed through the school’s webpage at https://tinyurl.com/obamacareerclusters.  All portfolios are to be completed and submitted to the homeroom teacher by May 9, 2019.

Please feel free to contact Mrs. Bennett, Counselor, at ozella_bennett@dekalbschoolsga.org  

or (678) 874-4417 if you have any questions.

Thank you for working with the school in providing the best education for your child.
