You may have heard about a request to public schools from a School Choice Organization for directory information. A School Choice Group asked for addresses and grade levels of students.
WHY? So they could send an advertising mailer to parents/guardians.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? It means you are going to get one additional piece of mail.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? Whatever you would typically do with advertisements/mailers that come to your house.

Career Fair at Staab Construction
Juniors and Seniors at Marshfield High School who are taking courses in construction and engineering were able to meet local employers at Staab Construction.
Aaron Scheuer’s Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE) Academy capstone students along with Caleb Henderson’s Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Engineering students spent time with local employers in the industry. Students were able to ask questions regarding what construction jobs entail, what a typical workday looks like and what kind of training is necessary on the job. Although the classroom gives some good insights, there are some fields such as commercial roofing that you cannot teach in a classroom or mock project. Field trips and career exhibitions such as these can provide the insight students are looking for as high school graduation quickly approaches.
Employers provided feedback to students on what they are looking for when hiring and recruiting new talent. Representatives from each company discussed work ethic, cell phone usage, and the training and safety measures they expect from each employee.
Staab Construction, who hosted the event, had heavy equipment on site for those interested in operating, for example, a front-end loader. Total Electric engaged with students and taught basics of electrical work. Other companies who dedicated time for the afternoon were House of Heating and Maurer Roofing. House of Heating offered students considering a career in plumbing and heating the opportunity to job shadow for the day.
Because of great partnerships in our community, students are provided educational experiences through job shadowing, service-learning opportunities, field trips and guest speakers.
Please contact Jenni Fredrick, Career and Technical Education Coordinator, at 715-387-8464 x4376 or firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like more information on partnerships to enhance college and career readiness!
