Designing Careers

cev-2016-blog

Another important part of the AOAT career preparation process is the annual Career Exploration Visit. This year’s hosts – Midnight Oil and Impress Communications – are two leading contenders in the high end design and printing fields. And both were extending this incredible opportunity to the students not for the first time – Midnight Oil was the host of our very first CEV six years ago, and Impress has hosted AOAT twice before! We cannot thank these generous companies enough for welcoming young people into their domains and opening their eyes to possible careers. Touring and learning about the many facets of – and specialties within – the field they are studying in school gives our students the awareness they need to visualize their own futures.

And we couldn’t have organized and carried out these trips without Mr. Diebold who called and followed up with the company contacts. And a shout out as well to our chaperones – alumni Marcy Saylor and Michael Trimarchi, student teacher Jesse Sosa, and Advisory Board members George Roberts and John Ford – thank-you!

Art Club Rocks the Parade

blog-homecoming2016

Fall means floats, and Art Club created another winning entry in the Homecoming competition. Theme this year was amusement park rides, and the Club’s Alice in Wonderland designs were terrific, from painted backgrounds and props to colorful costumes. Enthusiasm builds over the two weeks of long hours required to build such a masterpiece, and teachers provide support and a cheering section for these talented students. Go Art Club!!
