Students In Action!

 

Weed High School students, parents, and staff have the mutual confidence that when a student receives a WHS diploma, they are college & career ready -- meaning they have a plan and they have the skills and resources to implement that plan because of the experiences they have had at our school and within our community.

Weed High School Students Preparing for Annual Interview Fair


 

Weed High School Juniors will participate in an interview process put together by WHS staff and the Siskiyou Training and Employment Program (STEP). Each student is preparing a resume and an employment proposal they will deliver to a panel of community professionals.  See more at www.weedhighschool.com

The interview fair is one of Weed High School's annual college and career readiness activities. The purpose of the interview fair process is to provide students with interviewing experience and skills they can use for scholarships, college entrance, and in future careers. All students will receive written and verbalfeedback from the interviewers. Ten finalists will be called back for second interviews and five will be selected to “get the job”.

One of the preparation activities the students participated in was a presentation from community business members about the interview process. These presentations included appropriate wardrobe choices, types of questions they may receive, and how to shake hands and introduce themselves.

No Snow Day After Spring Break

Remember those snowy days in January when we missed school?  Well, the bad news is we have to make one of them up.  So, you guessed it, this means we’re not having a snow day after Easter vacation. Plan on being back at school on April 17th

Work hard and be on time!


Weed High School is kicking off a six-week project focusing on employability, or soft, skills.  Examples of these types of skills include: work ethic, being coachable, enthusiasm, teamwork, self-starter, timeliness, good communication, problem-solving, and willingness to learn. During their advisory period, students will be learning about these skills and then they will create their own Individualized Skills Report Card, using what they’ve learned and how it applies to their current focus for college and career readiness.  Students will also be discussing their skills report card with our business and industry community members when they go on their job shadow experience and participate in the interview fair.   This week, CalFire Captain Matt Hill spoke with our students about the importance of having positive work habits.  He exhorted the students to “be on time for a start time of 8:00 means you arrive at 7:45,” and on how important it is to have integrity – be honest, tell the truth.
