Each spring the Counseling Department hosts career presentations. This year we continue this tradition virtually. We will also be focusing on the CTE Pathways offered by PUSD. These lunchtime visits give students the opportunity to learn first-hand about different professions that might interest them as well as classes offered at Del Norte to fulfill a pathway. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with professionals in our community.
