Florence 1 Job Olympics Returns For Third Year

Florence 1 Job Olympics Returns For Third Year
Job Olympics in Florence 1 Schools

It is time for the Florence 1 Job Olympics! This annual event is an opportunity for students in Programs for Exceptional Education to showcase the employability skills they have acquired in their classes and community-based training experiences. West Florence was the winning school last year so they will host this year’s event.

During the Job Olympics, students will have the opportunity to compete in a variety of employability tasks, such as demonstrating computer and telephone etiquette skills, folding and sorting laundry items, cleaning a hotel room, and organizing, scanning, and bagging retail items.

The Job Olympics will take place on April 11th, 2024. Students will arrive around 9:30 from their home school by bus. If your student is in Programs for Exceptional Education, has not already signed up for the Job Olympics and you would like for them to participate, please contact the Florence 1 Office of Transition at 843-292-1005.
