Career Based Learning at West
West had its first Business Advisory Board meeting on October 16
. Several business leaders are serving on the board, including three alumni in Dennis Lamers (McMahon Group), Rollie Stephenson (Faith Technologies), and Curt Kubiak (OSI and NOVO Health). The purpose of the Business Advisory Board is to help teachers and students engage students in creating a robust Academic and Career Plan for each graduate.
The Business Advisory Board is guided by AASD's Classroom to Career initiative and board of education goal.
The Appleton Education Foundation has committed $30,000 to support AASD's Classroom to Career efforts with $10,000 allocated to each high school.
Kudos to current West student: Madeline VanTassel
Madeline VanTassel, a senior, has qualified for the WIAA State Cross Country Meet to be held this weekend in Wisconsin Rapids. This is the third time Madeline has qualified for the state meet.
Best of luck, Madeline!
This past summer, work began on replacing the windows at West, starting with the front of the building. These energy efficient windows will not only pay for themselves over time, but they give a nice face lift to our beloved building.
