On behalf of everyone at EHOVE Career Center, I would like to welcome you to the EHOVE family. I look forward to sharing with all of our stakeholders a monthly update as to what is happening on campus. We have several new staff members joining the EHOVE high school team for the 2010-11 school year.
I would like to welcome Dale VanLerberghe as the new Assistant Principal, Erika Beckman as an Assistant Director, Brenda Ruffing as a science teacher, Vicky Mahl as the Exercise Science instructor, Sean Heath as an Intervention Specialist, Marcia Herbkersman as an Intervention Specialist, and Chuck Livermore and Dick Starcher as the Manufacturing Tech I instructors.
Along with new staff, we are excited to have several new offerings for the upcoming year. EHOVE will now offer Exercise Science, Forensics, and Green Science Technology. The creation of these new programs is a direct reflection for the economic need in our area of service (800 square miles). We will also be embedding science credits into Exercise Science, Green Science Technology, and EMT programs. The embedded credit we are offering will allow students to earn a science credit at the same time they are earning their lab credits. Therefore, this opens up more opportunities for our students to earn more credit toward an honors diploma and ultimately toward graduation.
I would like to thank all the parents and students for their cooperation during student registration held on July 27th and 28th. It was nice to see so many families take the time to meet staff and view the campus. I enjoyed meeting the newest EHOVE family members.
Our job at EHOVE is to teach and prepare our students for what they will experience when they graduate. One of those lessons is proper etiquette and use of cell phones and other electronic devices. Therefore, we have changed our policy to allow cell phones/electronic devices on campus. These items will not be allowed in the classroom, unless the instructor designates their use for educational purposes.
As the new principal, I look forward to working with our parents, guardians and partner schools as we provide a positive educational experience for the students of EHOVE. If I can answer a question or address a concern, please feel free to contact me at 419-499-4663 ext 230 or by email at email@example.com.
