During the meeting you will learn about this exceptional opportunity allowing students to explore hands-on training, skills and knowledge in commercial manufacturing or residential construction, while still enrolled at their residential school where they can participate in their school's extracurricular activities.

You all should have received a postcard in the mail about these meetings the last week of January.  If you are unable to attend the meeting scheduled in March, you are very welcome to attend any of the meetings at the other high schools in town.  The postcard lists all of those dates.

The main office should have more copies of that card if you need one. Thank you!
