De Zavala Poster Winners
All students at De Zavala worked hard to complete their career poster drawings. It was difficult to choose, but we have six awesome entries. We have a zookeeper, art teacher, artist, veterinarian, surgeon and cartoonist. They will move to compete at the district level. Students were encouraged by counselors Ms. McGriff and Mrs. Glover to use Career Cruising. 

De Zavala Career Fair

Mrs. Glover and Ms. McGriff, counselors at De Zavala, coordinated with 4th and 5th grade students and teachers to conduct a peer-to-peer career fair for 2nd and 3rd grade. Students used different presentation methods to showcase their plans for their futures.
