The 7th graders at Manatee Charter School recently took a field trip, led by middle school ELA teacher, Elizabeth Koutny, to explore local colleges and career preparation programs. The students visited State College of Florida and Manatee Technical College. At each campus, students took a tour, learned about careers, college credits, the enrollment processes, expectations, and more! At Manatee Charter, students begin with the end in mind, and are encouraged to begin planning their futures now. With the help of teachers and staff members, wheels were turning and dreams were soaring. Great work Manta-Rays!
