Tips for Distance Learning Success!

Announcements:

Thought for the Week:

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.  Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” - Helen Keller

With that, I hope you take some time to reflect on your distance learning practices and continue working on building those successful habits.  And, through these trials, I hope that you are strengthened, inspired, and you achieve success?

Choose to have a great day, Panthers!

Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are invited to attend the Septagon Construction Career Day on April 16, 2020. Sign up through the Google Form found in your email from Mrs. Kennedy by Friday, Feb 7th, 2020.

The construction trades industry is facing a severe shortage of skilled young talent in over 25 professions.  In an attempt to fill the projected one million plus careers opening up over the next few years, this Construction Career Day will demonstrate careers in the industry and inform high school students how these career paths pay well and do not require the traditional four-year college degree.

During this event, students from over 50 school districts will be given the opportunity to operate lifts, tools and other equipment.  They can also try their hand at activities such as laying mortar on brick, working with concrete, tiling and many other activities.  This will allow students to explore careers they may not have given thought to previously.

Again, check your email from Mrs. Kennedy.

Sophomores, juniors, and seniors are invited to attend the Septagon Construction Career Day on April 16, 2020. Sign up through the Google Form found in your email from Mrs. Kennedy by Friday, Feb 7th, 2020.

The construction trades industry is facing a severe shortage of skilled young talent in over 25 professions.  In an attempt to fill the projected one million plus careers opening up over the next few years, this Construction Career Day will demonstrate careers in the industry and inform high school students how these career paths pay well and do not require the traditional four-year college degree.

During this event, students from over 50 school districts will be given the opportunity to operate lifts, tools and other equipment.  They can also try their hand at activities such as laying mortar on brick, working with concrete, tiling and many other activities.  This will allow students to explore careers they may not have given thought to previously.

Again, check your email from Mrs. Kennedy.
