Students will interact with well over 60 business and industry and post-secondary partners in these areas: Arts & Communications, Business, Technology & Human Services, Engineering & Manufacturing, Health & Natural Sciences and Early Middle College. To view the impact from our event last school year, visit MiCareer Quest-SW will expose students to exciting careers and get them inspired about their futures! This career education event sponsored by Kalamazoo RESA will take place on either the morning or afternoon on November 1st for all 9th graders and November 2nd for all 8th graders. Students will be transported by school bus to the Kalamazoo Expo Center. 

Parents should not plan to pick students up for appointments during the field trip. If your child is not able to attend the entire field trip, he/she should return the form and plan to stay at school. This form should only be returned if NOT attending the field trip. We would like for all students to be able to attend this experience, so please plan accordingly if at all possible.
