Prom was last weekend and was an absolute blast. The kiddos were given the opportunity to experience my dance moves (I don't have any but I tried) and we had very loving facilitators who treasured their time with our learners. These rituals are so incredibly important to the social development of our learners and I am incredibly grateful that we have a PTSO that provides these opportunities.

Additionally, Mr. Granado took a group of Spanish learners to a hispanic market and Ms. Mastebroeke took business learners to Vari to see what corporate culture and manufacturing looks like. This is an amazing time for learner's expanding their horizons through NT@C.

Have a fantastic weekend!


Mr. Smith

    Counselor's Corner

    NTH@C Parents/Guardians,

    The NTH@C Juniors and Seniors are looking for opportunities within our community to complete their Job Shadowing graduation requirements. If you would be willing to mentor our learners, please complete this short form for each person/occupation. All job shadowing must be completed prior to April 30, 2022.

    Job Shadowing Mentor Sign-up

    Job Shadowing is an opportunity for learners to ‘shadow’ with a business professional in a specific occupation or career of learner interest. Learners will observe responsibilities and tasks associated with the mentor’s career and can ask questions about the knowledge, skills, talents, and level of education required for the job. While the purpose of job shadowing is to gather career related information and expand the learner’s contacts, it also allows opportunities to build interviewing skills, awareness of trends in the field and see workforce technologies in action. Job shadowing is not a part-time job. It is an opportunity for the learners to increase their knowledge in a potential career path.

    Juniors/Seniors are expected to complete 10/15 hours of job shadowing experience this year. Their commitment to the program requires their flexibility in their schedule. They may be scheduled during the school day, after school, or on weekends. Some of the senior learners may need more than the required 15 for this year. They should know how many they need.

    All juniors/seniors are required to obtain career exploration experience to graduate from NTH@C. Due to the variety of career fields and interests that are represented among the junior/senior classes, each experience will differ. All job shadowing experiences must meet the following requirements.
    1. 10 hours/Juniors and 15 hours/Seniors of shadowing experience in a career field of interest.
    2. Job Shadowing Consent Form and Medical Authorization signed by you and your parents must be on file.
    3. You MAY NOT shadow your parents, but you may shadow someone else at your parent’s place of business. If you have a question about where you would like to shadow, ask Mrs. Russell or Mr. Lee.
    4. You will abide by the rules and regulations of CISD and the company while on site.
    5. You will be on time for all designated meetings or scheduled work. Should you need to miss your scheduled time for any reason, you will call your contact with as much advance notice as possible.
    6. You agree to dress appropriately for your job shadowing (ie – business dress in most cases).
    7. You agree to provide your own transportation.
    8. You will not accept any form of payment for assignments completed during job shadowing.
    9. You must keep up with all course work and due dates during the shadowing.
    10. You will have up to 2 days of excused absences to complete your job shadowing. Job Shadowing related absences DO NOT extend coursework deadlines.
    11. Your job mentor must complete the Volunteer Criminal Background check found on the CISD website. Link to CISD Background Check Information

    With gratitude,
    LeeAnn Farris Russell
    NTH@C, Counselor
