Career and SLC Day

A chance to represent your future career, or your SLC!

A doctor adjusts her stethoscope, a lawyer straightens his posture, and one student’s outfit matches the color scheme of their lanyard. Career and SLC day was chosen for Wednesday’s homecoming spirit theme, and countless students are dressed in accordance to their potential future careers, or their SLC colors.

Career and SLC day is a great opportunity for students to dress the part of whatever they hope to become someday, and for those who are unsure of what to be or how to dress, can sport the colors of their Small Learning Community. This spirit day gives everyone a chance to show their school spirit all while representing their career field.


Carrie Hang Carrie Hang, CAPA senior, wore a lab coat for Wednesday’s spirit day. “I’m dressed up as a doctor because I aspire to be one someday,” Hang said. She had gone so far in pursuing her medicinal career that she took part in a program over the summer called “Decision Medicine”, the program in which she received her own personalized lab coat.

Kimmy Parra, a junior in Engineering, dressed as a tech designer for Career and SLC Day. “I always wanted to go into the STEM field because I love science and math,” Parra said. She’s commonly referred to as “tech princess”, as she’s known for being the first female commissioner of technology in our 11 years of Chavez history, and captures this aspiration through her outfit for Wednesday’s spirit theme.

Additionally, there’s no pressure placed upon students who are undecided or aren’t sure how to properly represent their potential professions, as they have the option to dress in accordance to the colors of the lanyards they receive when they choose their SLC. Samantha Vazquez, another senior in CAPA, wore an orange shirt to represent her SLC. “I chose CAPA as my SLC because it’s creative. I don’t know what I want to be yet so this was a good alternative,” Vazquez said.

In total, about 380 students showed their school spirit for Career and SLC Day by dressing up. For many students this spirit theme is a great way to feel a closer connection to their future careers and helps to make their vision a reality, even if it’s only for a day.
