EHS Career Readiness Activities A big Thank you goes out to the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Iowa for sharing your Trades Exploration Trailer at Emmetsburg High School and Emmetsburg Middle School on November 14! Our students were able to explore a variety of vocational trade areas using virtual reality and other hands-on displays. All Sophomores and Juniors took the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) assessment on November 15. This assessment is created by the American Collect Testing Program (ACT) and is used to measure students’ essential skills for workplace readiness. The NCRC includes the following three assessments: Applied Math, Graphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents. Employers are increasingly using the NCRC in screening potential employees. All EHS?Freshmen participated in an Employability Bootcamp on November 15-17, which was coordinated by Autumn Larsen, Iowa Lakes Intermediary for the Connect Program, and Emmetsburg High School Counselor Jamie Kruger. Freshmen worked on writing resumes and also practiced job interviewing skills. All Seniors participated in College and Financial Readiness Bootcamp on November 15. Seniors worked on their career goals and plans, received some college admission guidance as well as some financial aid and scholarship guidance. Additionally, the seniors also engaged with a panel of speakers from our community about financial literacy and money management. All Juniors and Seniors then attended an assembly at Spencer High School about Financial Literacy on November 17. The speaker was, Anthony O’Neal, who is part of the Dave Ramsey Financial Literacy program.
