OCS Weekly Update
Some students brought in their social security number and some did not. If they did not, it's ok, but if you could please go to NCworks.gov with them and set up an account for them it would be wonderful! This website is such a great resource for our kiddos! It has available jobs in the area, seminars/classes at Mitchell available and also allows our kiddos to apply for jobs! It is an extremely useful account to have. If you are unsure if your child has one already, ask them to sign on. There are only a few that knew their social security number and were able to sign up for an account.
Career Training (Jobsites)
Financial Management- The boys just finished Unit 1, which was Personal Financial Planning. We are now moving on to Unit 2, which is Wages and Compensation. They are working hard on understanding how to make a budget and the difference between a "need" and a "want". We will be starting our own personal budgets during this unit!
American History II
In Applied Science in Unit 1 and 2, we are learning about the environment, including renewable and nonrenewable resources. Students also learned about different types of land, air, and water pollution and the impact that we have on the environment. On Wednesday, we also go to do a fish dissection lab with Mrs. Knippenburg's Marine Science class,
Please review these with your students to help them prepare!
Excused Senior Skip Day - Seniors do not need to come to school this day!
March 4th (during 4th block)
Spread the Word to End the Word
Young Scholars of America will be selling t-shirts and bracelets this year. If students at our school buy a t-shirt or bracelet, they get to join in the festivities, just as it was last year. The YSA "Spread The Word" event will include games, food, and guest speakers along with the balloon release on the turf. Feel free to contact me YSA any questions, concerns, or ideas you have for the event. Order forms are available through the school.
Students will be registering for their classes for next year.
The OCS registration process is a bit different than the school-wide registration.
More information will be sent home soon.
Alternate ACT Testing & Early Release Day
Students will not be going to jobsites this day. Juniors will be taking the CCRA test, which is the alternate ACT Test.
