This Monday is our kick-off “professional dress” day of the year. Training our students to dress appropriately for business is part of our commitment to preparing them for college and career. When they become comfortable in the clothing styles required for interviewing, they gain confidence when the real job – or college or scholarship – interview takes place. They learn to shake hands and look an adult in the eye when they introduce themselves. Over the three years of practicing professionalism in class, the dressing for success habit becomes ingrained, and students take that self confidence with them as they move into their places in the wider community of adult life.
