Holiday Work Opportunities @ Old Navy

Old Navy in Manhattan Beach would like to hire DV students for paid jobs over the holidays. To learn more, plan to attend an Information Session on Friday, October 31st at 9:00a.m. in Mr. Anderson’s room. An Old Navy recruiter will be there to explain how to apply. Applicants must be 16 years of age or older. And it’s fine if you are dressed in your Halloween costume because this is just an information session.

This is a great opportunity for students to get real work experience, make money, and work with a great management team!

Next Week is Spirit Week!

Monday- ‘Merica Monday (wear red, white & blue)
Tuesday-Twinsie Tuesday & Red Cross Blood Drive
