Dear Students, Families, Parents, Guardians, and Community Members.
This week at RTCC- We had Williamstown visitors who participated in learning about our programs and talked with our students and staff. They had a great visit and we look forward to them joining us as students next year. Criminal Justice/Public Safety learned all about gangs and terrorism- Thank you Mr. Hartford for adding to the learning. Diesel Technology students rebuilt an entire engine and it works! Building trade students worked on Mortise and tendons’ and dowels as well as furniture month continues, student projects are beginning to take shape. Building Trades students completed a Sugarhouse renovation for a Randolph family. Our Business Core programs (Digital Film, Graphic Arts, Global Business, and Business Management) were all represented at the Entrepreneurship Contest at the State House on February 4th. Honorable Mention in the video contest went to RTCC’s Evan Warner, Willy Noyes, Kristen Bennett, and Liana Sterling for their creativity. Randolph nearly swept the bumper sticker portion of the competition. Honorable Mention went to Kyle Duddie and Brianna Mayotte. Second place was awarded to Sierrah Carrasco and Amber Silloway. The first place submission, created by Destiny Duval and Sera Falco, can now be seen throughout town (and all over Vermont) on many car bumpers, and on various doors and windows. How exciting it is for our students to see their work actually used all over the state! Health Career students began their clinical observations at Gifford Hospital this week, a true learning lab. Educational Social Services students continue to intern at the local preschools and elementary schools. Agriculture Technology students and 5th & 6th graders from Randolph Elementary School planted pea shoots and micro greens to grow and use in our culinary arts program when fully developed. Business Management student's are taking concurrent college courses in Math, English, and Accounting all for college credit. This is truly education at its best. Finally, on February 5th we had our Honor Roll & Student of the Quarter Assembly. Students were called up to be presented with a certificate and congratulated by the school. We ended the assembly by having a winter picnic lunch in Auto Technology (Thank you for setting, up, grilling, and cleaning upJ ) for a community building day. The third quarter is speeding by and February break will be here in no time.
A few reminders-
Senior Technical Projects are in full motion and students need to be documenting their hours.
RTCC Adult Education programs offer a lot of options to learn different skills. Check out their classes at www.orangesouthwest.org/adult_education We encourage you to ask students about their daily learning and thank you for supporting our school.
