ASAVAB - Please distribute the ASVAB handouts in homeroom this week AND encourage them to sign up for the test.  Each homeroom has a signup sheet to circulate with the students and return to guidance and there is also a signup sheet in guidance.   It is FREE and will show them what their natural aptitudes are, this is great for students who know they are going to college but have NO idea what they want to do or study in college. 

 

Please have a discussion and explain to them that this is NOT a military test, and as the handout shows, less than 18% of the students who participate are planning to enlist. This test is a great opportunity for our students to receive feedback on their natural aptitudes.  When students say, “I have no idea what I want to do after I graduate”, they could benefit from taking the ASVAB.  PLEASE talk to them and explain it is NOT just for students going in the military, if you don’t talk to them, they may miss this opportunity.

 

LET’S HELP MAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY KNOWN TO OUR STUDENTS AND THAT IT IS NOT A MILITARY TEST!  IT IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR POSSIBLE CAREER PATHS.
