Manufacturing Month

October is manufacturing month. There are two upcoming field trips touring manufacturers to learn more about employment possibilities in all areas of manufacturing. Both of these field trips are supported by Gateway Technical College and Walworth County Economic Development Alliance, Inc to provide students the opportunity to learn more about manufacturing. Currently the technology education department offers several courses in construction, welding, and engineering with options to earn certifications in welding and Yamaha Marine Service skills. East Troy High School also offers several transcipted courses from Gateway Technical College in our Career and Technical Education Department which include business, computer science, engineering, welding, and construction courses. At East Troy we are fortunate to have several partnerships with area manufacturers that provide students with opportunities for job shadowing and youth apprenticeships.

Gage Marine Donation

Big picture

Gage Marine purchased and donated the textbooks students will be using for the Yamaha Marine University Course that is part of the Small Engines class. Students have an opportunity to take this course second semester. This course will be covering Yamaha Marine engine concepts and skills in the books along with covering the Gateway Technical College competencies for Small Power Equipment course, since the course is transcripted. Students completing the Small Engines class, which includes the Yamaha Introduction to Outboard Systems course information and passing the Yamaha Marine test will get a Yamaha Marine certificate for Service Skills and a transcripted credit through Gateway Technical College for Small Power Equipment. The cost of the donated textbooks by Gage Marine is $2,500.


Gage Marine also will be donating an engine for students to work on valued at $200. After the students are finished repairing the engine, it's value will be approximately $3,000.


We would like to thank Gage Marine and Matt Oglesby for the donation, for the partnership going forward with this Yamaha Marine course, and for providing additional apprenticeship opportunities for our students.

Counseling Corner

The goal of the Counseling staff at East Troy High School is to support learning by addressing academic, personal/social, and career related questions and concerns. We aim to support students and their families throughout high school, so students can make appropriate post secondary plans. We welcome opportunities to meet with students and/or parents to discuses any question you may have.



The month of October is very busy in the Counseling Office. We will be giving the PSAT on Wednesday, October 10th, offering a Financial Aid Workshop during conferences on October 11th, and hosting numerous college/military personnel during resource periods.


Additionally, a pupil service member will be presenting the Signs of Suicide Curriculum to all Freshman during their Health/PE class on Oct 16 and 17. If you have any questions about the any of these events, please contact the counseling office.
