Middle School Career Tech Tours

Florence Middle School students came and toured our FHS Career Tech department. They were able to tour all of our areas of career tech and ask questions about each. This will be very helpful in choosing their courses for high school.

During REACH for the next few weeks, students are receiving information about graduation requirements and course offerings that will assist them in planning their schedule for the 2018-2019 school year. Below is a little of the information that was shared this week.
