It’s that time where some students need a job to be able to continue their schooling. There’s so many jobs where you can personally apply to if you want to start working or even gain more experience! Hear out from some of your peers on what they have to say about their experience(s)!
So why do some students work? APB senior Yeni said that “working is worth it, I work because I just love money” she also said that working isn’t really that hard as long as you know how to manage your time with school and work. Another student that also works is APB Junior, Yamileth Osorio who currently works at a fast food restaurant and claims that working is not that hard she said that, “It all depends on you”.
Working is easy and very beneficial towards yourself , you don’t have to depend on your parents no more once you’re already working and getting your own money.
Now what if you want to start working? How do you get permission from the school? Principal Reed stated that working while you’re in high school is a great experience because you can gain leadership experiences and learn to be independent. But, you can only get a work permit if you have good grades. Students can not be failing any classes at all. If any students tends to fail any classes while he/she is working there will be a meeting with your parents and Mr.Reed discussing about how to pick up your grades and just question you on why did they suddenly drop.
