With the first day of school right around the corner, we want to ensure that you know how to reach CCPS employees if you have any questions or concerns. To help you in determining who to contact, please see our Communication Flowcharts. The link is also posted at the bottom of each issue of the CCPS Express and on the CONTACT US page of our www.ccps.us website.
Caroline Career Connections
Welcome to the 2023-2024 Caroline Career Connections portion of the newsletter! CCPS has hired a Work-Based Learning Teacher who will be focusing on building professional relationships between students and local business partners. This program will help students utilize the skills they have acquired in their Career & Technical Education courses and apply them in a real-world setting through job shadowing, mentoring, cooperative learning, service learning and externships with our local participating businesses.
Each month, Career Connections will keep you updated on upcoming activities and events as well as helpful career tips. If you have any questions about the work-based learning program or would like to become a business partner please contact Mrs. Kristina Sanders at (540) 809-2957 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, while you are preparing for back-to-school and cleaning out closets, take a moment to save any professional dress apparel and donate to our “Dress for Success” shop. This shop is taking donations of professional dress clothing for both ladies and gentlemen (blazers, dress shirts/blouses, dresses, socks, dress shoes). All donations can be dropped off at the CHS front office and labeled as “Dress for Success” shop. Donations will go directly to students who need clothing for job interviews or the workplace. Thank you for your support of our Career & Technical Education programs! Growing 3E Ready Graduates!
