CTE Month 

February is another exciting month at CTHS and great things are happening on our campus.

Students will have an asynchronous learning day on Monday, February 1. Our teachers will have a day to plan and prepare lessons, make videos, contact parents and students, and grade assignments. Students will be logging in to Class Link and completing assignments in Schoology or the Connect Personalized Learning Platform.

On Friday, February 5, virtual junior and senior students will have an opportunity to come to CTHS during their CTE pathway course for hands-on instruction. Students will have an opportunity to practice skills and receive important hands-on instruction related to their certification area. We encourage all junior and senior virtual students to take advantage of this opportunity.

On Tuesday, February 9, we will be administering the Spanish and Vietnamese Credit by Examination opportunities for students. Students who feel competent to read, write, listen and speak to one of these languages can test to earn high school credit. Students may sign up for this opportunity by talking with their counselor or World Language instructor.

On Wednesday, February 10, we will have an extended day opportunity for students from 2:45 – 4:15 pm. Students may stay and work on makeup assignments, complete lab work, schedule tutorials with teachers, or attend club or organization meetings. PISD buses will be available for students at 4:30 p.m.

Students will have two holidays on Monday, February 15 and Tuesday, February 16 while our teachers and staff members are participating in district and campus trainings. These are school holidays so students are not required to log in and complete assignments.

February is national CTE month and we celebrate our students and our incredible CTE pathway teachers. We continue to pursue excellence in training and educating students to earn industry recognized certifications despite the challenges of COVID-19.

In February, we also celebrate National School Counseling Week. We have an incredible counseling team who works with students, parents, and teachers every day to ensure the academic, social, and emotional success of all students. We are proud of our counselors and our CTE teachers for all they do at CTHS. We hope you have a wonderful February and we wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at CTHS!                   Happy Valentine's Day
