Carlmont’s annual course fair was held on Jan. 26 during lunch in the main gym.

The course fair helps many students choose what classes they are going to take in the upcoming school year.

In order to do this, teachers set up tables, gave out informational handouts, and answered any questions that students asked.

Some of these handouts outline the various classes in a specific subject that are offered to students, and others give a description of one specific course and the homework level that is required for that course.

The course fair helps many students to identify new classes that they may not have known about.

“Going to the course fair helped me to make decisions about the classes that I am going to take next year. Also, I now know about classes that I didn’t know about before,” said sophomore Nathan Durrans.

I think that students benefit from the course fair because they begin to make a relationship between themselves and teachers. ”

While Durrans was able to discover new courses, other students, such as sophomore Victor Navarro, were able to make a decision between two courses.

“The course fair helped me to make a decision about what level of history I will take next year,” said Navarro.

Many teachers and students agree that the course fair helps students feel more comfortable in their class choices for next year.

“I think that students benefit from the course fair because they begin to make a relationship between themselves and teachers,” said Carlmont history teacher Jayson Waller. “Also, the students are able to gain more information about the classes they may go into next year.”
