Maple Grove CRC
The Maple Grove Senior High School Career Resource Center is located just inside the Media Center, and is staffed by Mike Vecellio and Laurie Roiger. We invite students in to support them on their journey to explore and finalize post-high school plans. This process is different for every student, and may include career exploration, college planning, and/or connecting with the military. We also maintain a job board. We are open each day 7:10 - 2:30. Students should stop by the CRC if they would like to set up an appointment. Appointments can be made for before school, during lunch, after school and the second half of class periods. You will receive a pass during the class period indicating the time of your appointment.
