This school year was very rewarding. During this school year, many work-based learning opportunities took place among the Cedar Valley West schools. Each school participated in job shadows, internships, event tours (Advanced Manufacturing, IT, Construction and Health Care), took field trips and had guest speakers come into the classrooms.
As the year concludes, I wanted to share a few milestones accomplished by Cedar Valley Career Connections which Cedar Valley West is a partner of.
Students interested in internships next school year should contact Mrs. Ascher as soon as possible or fill out this form 2016-2017 Internship Request Form.
The internships were completed by just the Cedar Valley West Schools.
Grundy County Memorial Hospital has been a huge supporter of Cedar Valley West again this school year. They have hosted over 70 job shadows, 15 internships, provided guest speakers and hosted a health care week tour.
Students have been fortunate to experience a little taste of the “real life” as a nurse, surgeon, dietitian, occupational therapist, physical therapist, lab technician, surgical scheduler, accountant, as well as, other areas such as marketing and purchasing and logistics.
Cedar Valley West is proud to have Grundy County Memorial Hospital as a partner providing students endless opportunities in health care.
