Lights. Camera. Action. MIC NETWORK IS ON THE AIR

The MIC Network capitalized on the football scrimmage last week by using it as a dress rehearsal to assist in training and educating the 2019 Media Team. Starting this evening, you will be able to stream live coverage of the Warren Central and Center Grove football game starting at 7:00 PM. Throughout the school year, the MIC Network covers 1 to 2 live Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference events every week. In addition to the live coverage, the network runs several stories about student athletes throughout the MIC Conference. You can learn more by following the MIC Network on Social Media (Twitter ; Instagram; Facebook) or by visiting their website where you can stream live MIC action.

MOLD FREE BUILDING in CONSTRUCTION TRADES

Earlier this week, Schluter Systems, visited with our Construction Trades II program to educate students on the dangers of mold in a house, as well as the common installation errors that lead to mold growth. After the presentation, they provided a step by step demonstration on how to properly install the KERDI waterproofing system in a bathroom. Construction Trades is currently in year 2 of their 2 year House 29 build and will begin breaking ground on House 30 later this year.

SCRUB WEEK IS HERE!

This week was the first week that the Health Career programs began wearing their scrubs to school. Nothing better than not having to stress about what outfit you want to wear to school :) Both Dental Careers and Health Careers are Workforce Ready!
