SHHS Hosts CTE Orientations at SHMS, 11/30/2021

8th grade Mavericks are exploring careers with the help of the SHHS CTE department. Beginning November 29th and continuing through February, 8th graders have the opportunity to explore careers in six different clusters: Health Science, Engineering, Media & Technology, Family & Consumer Sciences, Business & Marketing, and Agriculture. SHMS is partnering with the SHHS CTE program to provide learning sessions for interested 8th-grade students as they prepare for high school enrollment.

Director of CTE, Clay Frigon, says the objective is to, “familiarize the students with our program offerings and what they have to look forward to” when attending SHHS. It also helps them plan their class enrollment and begin to think seriously about what careers they might be interested in pursuing.

According to the Spring Hill High School website, “The Spring Hill USD 230 Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs . . . offer students a sequence of courses relevant to technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare students for a smooth transition from high school to postsecondary education (technical colleges, community colleges, and universities), apprenticeship opportunities, the military, and/or to the workplace.”

8th graders may attend any of the sessions, which are offered during WIN time on November 29, December 13, January 10, 24, and 31, and February 7. Interested students must sign up using the Google form shared with them by administration.
