…Energy Careers with Georgia Power

…Dr. Scholl explained what it is like to be a veterinarian
IMG_0569…an exciting job as a flight nurse on a helicopter

Students have had many opportunities to work collaboratively with technology devices.

We ended the semester with a holiday party including crafts and yummy food.

We’ve had a great first half of the year! I know the rest of the year will be just as wonderful!
