Congratulations to Junior Rachel Agosta and Senior Madison Haupt. They will be representing Logan Elm in the 2015 Pumpkin Show Queens Contest. Good luck!
The beginning of a new school year is a wonderful time to talk with your child about their career interests and their plans after high school. One of the most difficult questions our students ask us is “Why do I need to know this and how will it help me in life?” We need to answer this question together; as a school and as a household. That question also needs to be answered with facts and data. The Ohio Department of Education and the State of Ohio have developed websites filled with easy-to- read charts and data that will help support our answer of “Everything is connected and your education will lay the groundwork for the rest of your life. Employers and Colleges will be looking at grades, attendance, behavior, etc. to determine what type of future employee/student you will become.”
The main website https://jobseeker.ohiomeansjobs.monster.com/ is filled with employment data, future trends, education needed, and career pathways. These career pathways will be a focus of Logan Elm High School throughout the 2015-16 school year. We have broken down these pathways into six main areas: Arts and Communication, Health Services, Business and Information Technology, Human Resources and Services, Industrial and Engineering, and Environmental and Agriculture Science. In addition to our staff focusing on each of these career areas in “Friday Conversations” during the students' Academic Enrichment period, we are also inviting leaders within our own community to speak to the students on a monthly basis.
The Ohio Department of Education has several brochures to help guide conversations with your child regarding Career Connections. A simple introduction to Career Pathways and a Guide for Parents will help you understand the wealth of information available for educators and parents through ODE and Ohio Means Jobs.
Thank you for taking time to read this E Letter and for continuing to have conversations with your child regarding their future. At Logan Elm we are very excited about the 2015-16 school year and we hope that our plans and efforts will help prepare your child for the next step in their lives.
Yours in Education,
“Be a Brave”
