  • Get add-ons like Productivity Owl (for Chrome) and Leechblock (for Firefox) to help with your productivity.

The purpose of career day was to answer the questions about jobs asked by the ninth graders. Noah Bumas ‘18 said “I think career day gave me a better insight on what finding a career actually is.” However, as it turns out, for some of the ninth graders, they
