8TH GRADERS VISITING THE MIAMI VALLEY CTC
All 8th grade students will be taking a field trip to the Miami Valley Career Technology Center (CTC) this school year. The Miami Valley CTC is an option available to students during their junior and senior year of high school. There are over 40 career fields available for students to choose from in order to get a head start on their career and college. While visiting the Miami Valley CTC, students will spend half the day touring the campus and visiting different career classrooms. The other half of the day will be spent in a computer lab exploring two career areas of interest to them. It is important for students to start thinking about their high school and career goals now. If you would like more information on the Miami Valley CTC, please visit their website at www.mvctc.com.
Yearbook Club Looking for Pictures!
If you have a child involved in ANY school activity, the yearbook staff would love to see the photos you have taken this year. We are always looking for great photos to add the yearbook! If you take photos at events, please check out the Replay It app. Replay It allows parents, coaches, and students to share photos with the yearbook staff. To get started, go to this link: www.replayit.com. There is a register button in the upper right corner. Get yourself registered, then you will be able to download any photos you have taken of school events!
Replay It adds extra value to the yearbook -- because at the end of the year, all of the content is sealed into a digital time capsule that yearbook buyers can access for years to come. The Replay It app is also available for Iphone and Android, making it easy to view and share photos on the go!
If you have any questions, you can contact Stephanie Carmack.
