CTE Department Soared High 1st semester, 2022
Ms. Whitney Johnson’s 4th period Career Management students worked extremely hard to obtain the CTE Conover Credentials in Workplace Readiness/ Job Readiness. These credentials show they have exhibited skills in Attitude, Communication, Planning and organizing, Critical Thinking, Interpersonal/ Social Skills, Teamwork, Professionalism, and Media Rules. The credentials are very valuable to their resumes when filling out job applications.
Ms. Kimberly Rivera’s Adobe Visual Design students received over 60 certifications in the Adobe Visual Academy Course. All creativity was done in the classroom during class. They were focused, determined and their creativity was phenomenal. Congratulations to these students.
Not to be outdone, Mr. Jeffrey Price’s Woodworking II students did an outstanding job as well. Everyone of his Woodworking II students received the Sawblade Certificate sponsored by the Woodwork Career Alliance (WCA). They have to go through an extensive 3-step process. They have to complete:
- A measuring process on 5 machines
- A hands-on process on 5 machines
- Take a 40 question National test where they have to score at least an 80 or above.
Congratulations!! to the following students: Kaleigh Baldwin, Dominique Harris, Ja'Lashia Hart, Princess Ross and Sayaer Tucker.
SFHS Chinese III Students Collaborate with New Epoch Bilingual Students in China
Seventy-First High School Chinese III honors class students had a collaborative lesson with Shanghai NewEpoch Bilingual High School students in China. During this collaborative lesson, students made presentations, performances and exchanged questions in the target languages. This collaborative lesson is a bridge for our students to interact with students from different cultures. It also gives our students new perspectives on how cultures and practices differ worldwide.
