AVERY - People who are prepared will have the survival skills to meet the challenges of high school and beyond. EHOVE Career Center staff members were welcomed back to school recently with a number of valuable training sessions.
Instructors started their year Aug. 20 with three days of development activities before juniors and new students came on campus Aug. 23.
On Aug. 20, Superintendent Sharon Mastroianni encouraged staff to "begin with the end in mind" to help students achieve personal and academic success throughout the year. On Aug. 21 and 22, instructors heard from experts Mark Perna and Kay Frances about ways to build strong classroom strategies and handle stress.
Over the summer, EHOVE Career Center made a number of extensive improvements including: updating and expanding computer and career tech labs; adding a sound room to the college tech prep interactive media program; pouring 250 yards of concrete to replace existing sidewalks and curbs; combining the Public Safety Academy's Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician curriculums were combined to offer students two certifications instead of one.
