What Can I Do?

Ideas to integrate graduation and graduation readiness into your work

When interacting with elementary age students

  • Ask what university their class has adopted
  • Does their school have a pledge?
  • What character traits are they working on as a school
  • What year do you graduate from high school?
  • What are your favorite subjects in school?  What career will that lead to?
  • Do you have good attendance?

When interacting with middle school students

  • What are your career or work interests?
  • What are you good at?
  • Have you started your High School and Beyond Plan? (formally starts in 8th grade)
  • What current and future classes align with your career interests?  Why?
  • What classes are you excited to take at Yelm High School?
  • What clubs or activities are you involved in at school?  Within the community?
  • Do you have good attendance?

When interacting with high school students

  • What year do you graduate?
  • What is your High School and Beyond Plan?

  • What career field do you plan to enter?
  • Have you completed the FAFSA?
