Mr. Jerry Mack
If you were unable to attend one of the three iPad Orientation programs held earlier in August, we have two more scheduled at 5:00pm during each of the first two days of school.
iPads will be handed out to students at 1:30p on the first days of school only to those students who have completed the iPad Orientation program with a parent/guardian (and returned the signature sheet).
The next two opportunities to attend the required iPad Orientations will be:
At our Freshman/New Student Orientation, I mentioned our curriculum efforts to match student needs to the current job market trends. Trends in the workforce indicate an increasing number of jobs requiring technical/skilled training and not a four year college degree. In order for our students to be in a position to secure these high skilled, high demand and high wage jobs, we've been making efforts to create curriculum to teach career education supported by vocational classes.
The two videos that I showed highlighting the job market trends are linked below.
To sign up for Mr. Mack's Chadron High School text messaging account, follow the directions below. This account will be used for any school reminders or schedule changes. An example would be to receive a text that Chadron High School has a late start or school closing due to weather.
You can remove yourself from the account at anytime simply by replying with "@leave" to any of the text messages.
Here we go, another school year is about to begin! :)
I hope everyone had a great summer break. I've listed the important dates below for students and parents. A parent or guardian must attend with the student to: iPad Orientation, Fall Sports Meeting and the New/Freshman Student Orientation.
At the end of each school year, Chadron High School contracts with LifeTrack Services, Inc. to conduct a confidential, non-biased senior exit survey. We just received the results for the graduating class of 2016. 51 seniors responded to the survey this year. I've included my notes in comparing these results to last year.
