NASA Astronaut "at" Whitworth - February 16 via zoom

Hear from NASA astronaut Jonny Kim about how he “accidentally” became a Navy SEAL medic, Harvard-trained physician and NASA astronaut. Kim will share about his journey from being the son of Korean immigrants in Los Angeles to becoming the United States’ first Korean American astronaut, and the important role resilience has played along the way.

This conversation between Kim and Associate Professor Mark Baird (veteran and clinical psychologist) will illuminate the importance of tenacity and grit in discovering and achieving calling and vocation…no matter when or how often your life plans change. Kim’s own journey is full of examples that show how resilience and focus can help you through changes in your career and calling. You will also see how selflessness and service drive Kim when it comes to finding common ground with others and bringing positive change to the world.

Registration for this event closes at noon PST on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

To register, go here.

Attention 8th graders & Parents/Guardians!

Career Lessons

All 8th grade students are participating in Career Lessons through their ELA class as the 8th grade portion of their High School and Beyond Plan (a high school graduation requirement). There are two different class lessons: the first focuses on interests and skills and which careers might be a good match; the second is about transitioning to high school, high school credits and how to relate college or career interests to 9th grade class registration. Mrs. Nootenboom is doing these lessons in the ELA class, so your student either participated 2nd quarter or it is coming up this month! ELA teachers will also have students complete a graded Career Project before the end of the school year.

High School Registration

You will be receiving details soon about high school registration. There will be a parent night likely the end of this month and then students will register in the first two weeks of March. Your student will receive instructions and guidance on how to register. They will also have several days to discuss the options at home with you or seek advice from current teachers before turning in class choices.

Students living in the boundary of EMS will go to Central Valley High School. If you live in the boundary of University High School or Ridgeline or your student is interested in SVT or Mica Peak High School, please contact me so I can be sure your student gets appropriate forms and contacts.

Spokane Valley Tech (SVT)

The STEM Academy at SVT is accepting applications for the upcoming school year now! If your student is interested in attending SVT instead of Central Valley High School, they must apply. Applications are due by February 26 and require 4 references and a statement of interest by the student. Please view the information on their website if you are interested

The STEM Academy is a rigorous program for students who are interested in a STEM field of study, enjoy project based learning and working with others. Students create and manage their own projects, so you must be a self-starter!

If you have questions about any of the above topics, please call Mrs. Nootenboom

at 558-3710.
