As you may have seen our students from Career-Technical Education (CTE) classes contributed to the homecoming festivities. Floriculture students made delicate corsages for the Homecoming Princesses from flowers grown during class. The game’s program was laid out, designed, and produced by graphic design students in the school’s multimedia classes. Before the game, CTE teacher Wayne Miller drove the Beaver Mascot around the high school track in a roadster built and maintained by the high school’s auto repair students.
Early Childhood Education Update:
As you now know the candidate who accepted the ECE position chose to abandon the job for another employment opportunity before the school year began. We were able to continue the class through the first semester by pulling Sarah Fontyn from her position in the PE department for one period. However, this solution will not work long-term.
I have met with Cascadia Tech Director and the CTE Directors from La Center and Ridgefield on a potential long-term solution. The idea is to make WHS a satellite of Cascadia Tech, in which we host the Early Childhood to Careers in Education program. Then with enrollment from the surrounding KWRL schools, the program could support a full-time teaching position that would attract a high-quality candidate. This concept is in the very early stages of discussion but looks to be a promising opportunity.
