Attention 8th Grade Parents! Your child will be attending a field trip to Sentinel Career and Technology center for a career exploration event on December 13 for half a day. 8th Grade Career Day is hosted by Sentinel as a way for students to learn about the different careers available to them after high school or college. Students have had the opportunity to select a career cluster and will speak with various professionals from those industries and complete hands-on activities related to those careers. Students will learn what type of education or training is required for certain careers to help them determine what they may be interested in as they begin to schedule high school courses. If you have any further questions about this Career Day event please contact Heather Schalk or Heather Stockmaster.

Established by the principals of seven Seneca County high schools, the Seneca County Youth Leadership Council held its first ever meeting at Tiffin University's Osceola Theater. Fifty-six students from Old Fort, Calvert, New Riegel, Mohawk, Fostoria, and Seneca East experienced lessons and activities in three core values of Character, Attitude, and Getting Along that accompany the book Skills For Life by Coach Mike Jarvis and Jonathan Peck. The meeting concluded with a thirty minute online video conference with Coach Jarvis himself. The Council plans on meeting three more times this school year to complete the study on leadership. Seneca East representatives are freshman John Fry and Livy Kaiser, sophomores Amelia Boes and Bryce Reiter, juniors Doug Falter and Kollin Frankart, and seniors Cody Postell and Gwen Johnston.
