Here’s what happening in our CTE program:

Plant sale in full swing:

Mrs. Vetter’s Horticulture Class has started their plant sale this week – this is always a big hit within our school and community. 35 of Shar Brown's middle school students from the "Hands-on Science Class" boarded a bus to the high school to tour the greenhouse and flower shop. The students observed the growing of the plants for the plant sale. The middle school students grew and transplanted the tomatoes and many of the flowers. The advanced Floral design students enter an art competition sponsored by Holland America Flower Gardens.

Skills USA (Mrs. Miller) shows well at State:

Our chapter received a school of distinction award – only two were given in the entire state!  Karin Taylor (Restaurant Service) and Carinda Washburn (Customer Service) won state and will be moving on to Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky June 20-24. Lidia Valenzuela (2nd Early Childhood Education), Selena Meddock (2nd Customer Service) and Karin Taylor (3rd Customer Service) all brought home top 3 hardware.

HOSA (Ms. Cullison) Giving blood to give back:

HOSA is putting on the blood drive May 4th in the Auxiliary Gym.  We have 89 students/teachers/community members signed up this year.  This is up from 55 last year.

Shop Classes (Mr. Miller) Are All About Hands-on Learning:

Beginning Metal's students are designing and making anchors, Auto Mechanics are removing and replacing another engine in a car. Auto is also replacing a head and all necessary gaskets on a truck. Our Advanced Metal students are custom making/fabricating a bumper for a truck.

FBLA (Mrs. Ruff) with a strong showing at State:

WHS FBLA students competed very well at State this year. It was held in Spokane at the Davenport Grand Hotel. Five students made it to finals: Allen McCabe - Web Design, Kade Holcomb & McKay Flanagan - Management Information Systems, Grace Adams - Client Service, and Dillon Franke - Public Service Announcement & Job Interview. Dillon Franke did such an incredible job as the Public Relations State Officer, helping Washington State FBLA and the other state officers plan and prepare for the conference. It was great seeing him on stage presenting awards and speaking to all of Washington State FBLA students. Dillon also placed 2nd in Public Service Announcement and 1st place in Job Interview! Dillon will be representing Woodland High School at Nationals for the 3rd time! As a chapter, we also received the Gold Seal Chapter Award of Merit. In order to receive this award, there are many things the chapter must do during the school year. Some of these things consist of community service projects, fundraising events, networking with businesses, and creating a Local Chapter Annual Business Report. Only three other chapters within our region received this award!
