2019 Feb 11: Planning for High School

This week Ms. Kelly Blair, RJH Principal, would like to share information regarding the Lunch and Learn Program her students will benefit from during the upcoming weeks. See attached.

It’s never too early for students to start planning for high school, college and career options.  At Rockdale Junior High, we are launching a new program in partnership with Perry and Perry construction that will provide students with valuable life skills for their future.  Beginning this week, students will participate in a ‘Lunch and Learn’ session where they will be introduced to a variety of trade skills.  These sessions will continue throughout the year during ‘Lunch and Learn’, with some trade skills being offered after school through our itigers program.  Students will be introduced to basic welding skills, financial planning sessions, interview skills, construction and engineering, sewing, auto mechanics, along with a variety of volunteer service opportunities. The timing of this program could not be better, as our 8th grade students are in the midst of high school course selections, a tour of Temple College, and CTE rounds to explore programs of study at Rockdale High School.  

Students interested in participating in the ‘Lunch and Learn’ and iTigers partnership, can sign up in the RJH front office.  The first session will be held on Wednesday, February 13th from 11:45-12:45.  All 7th and 8th-grade students are encouraged to participate.
