CCHS: Last week, students in the Jobs for Americas Graduates program had the opportunity to tour Kinross Mining and shadow the workers around the property. They were allowed to be near the tractors and look at them closely. Kinross staff took students to the top of the pit to look down into its depths. Overall, the students had a great time job shadowing. It was an opportunity for those who were unaware of what they wanted to do after graduation to explore a job field they may not have considered initially. The students came back with very educational and engaging information. Main photo above.

CCMS: Students in Torri Conley’s advisory class had their mothers in mind last week.  With Mother’s Day around the corner, she wanted her students to do something special for their mothers like they used to do in elementary school. With the necessary donations, it was possible. Pictured right: Two of Torri Conley's advisory students show off the project they made for their moms.

Numa: Parents flocked to the halls for the annual Numaseum event, where fifth graders took on the roles of a person, place, or event in history. After weeks of researching and writing, students dressed the part of their historical figures and shared with family and friends what they learned. Their informational speeches and boards wowed listeners throughout the evening. Not pictured. 

E.C. Best: Heidi Emke and Tracy Soules’ classes took a field trip to The Village Nursery last week. The students learned so much from the staff members, and they made the entire experience hands-on. The Village donated all the plants and materials so the students could create their Mother's Day gifts.

Lahontan: CCHS teacher Amanda Hammond took her two ceramics classes to Lahontan last week to meet with Jenny Young and Debbie Swisher’s first-grade classes. The first graders were paired with a ceramics student who drew a monster they collaborated on. The ceramics students will create their monster in 3D as part of their final project for the year and present it to their first-grade partner. Not pictured.
