Information from Neil Rollins:
Beginning September 22, 2014, students, faculty, and staff eligible for Office 365 ProPlus from their school can now take advantage of a new self-service sign up process. In the past, organizations were burdened with initiating the service, creating accounts and ordering the free licenses on behalf of their users. The new self-service model removes all of that unnecessary friction and delay by simply allowing eligible users to sign up for the service themselves, while maintaining the same level of control, flexibility and security institutions have come to expect from Office 365.
To check their eligibility of the ProPlus benefit, students, faculty, and staff can go to www.office.com/getoffice365 and enter a school-provided email address. Once validated, users over the age of 13 can create an Office 365 account and get access to Office 365 ProPlus, OneDrive for business, SharePoint Online, Office Online.
Job Shadowing Ms. Parsons in the Career Center would like for all students to consider job shadowing this semester, whether you have a class at CCCC or not.
Job shadowing gives students the opportunity to spend time in a workplace setting, observing and learning about a career. In order to participate, a student must:
* Have good attendance
* Have passing grades this year
* Have a good discipline record
* Have an interest in learning about a career
* Have reliable transportation (not relying on another student since their date and/or time may be different)
If you meet these criteria, sign up! We cannot guarantee that we will find a site for everyone, but every effort will be made. Priority will be given to junior and senior level students.
On the sheet**, please list any other shadowing sites you have had. You will not be able to shadow in the same location a second time. (**Please see a teacher for sign-up sheet.)
Remember, your absence from class does not count against you, but you must get your work and complete it. Also, shadowing involves more than just the actual time on site. You must do some pre-planning to learn something about the job you will shadow, answer questions, write a thank you note, etc. for a grade that will be counted as a daily grade in either an academic or Career Center class.
Spring Art Show
Students interested in participating in the Superintendent's Art Show in the spring should begin thinking about what art work you will want to enter. The art work can be a drawing, painting, photograph, graphic design, or sculpture. The work must be an ORIGINAL work of YOUR creation. All entries should be turned in to Ms. Denham in Room G-2 by March 23rd and should include your name, your grade, the materials used for the work, and a title (if you have named the piece). See Ms. Denham for more details.
