About Our Team
8th Grade Signature Units:
Every year, the 8th grade students get to participate in a cross-curricular STEM and Careers project. Here, each core class focuses on a different aspect of the project in order to help with the overall success of their project.
This year in 8th grade we are focusing on careers. In the fall students completed activities through Xello to identify where their career interests are. When the students complete these activities, they are given their top two career clusters. Career clusters include: Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources, Architecture & Construction, Arts, A/V Technology & Communications, Business Management & Administration, Health Science, Human Services, and Science, Technology, Engineering & Math.
In January and February students will be conducting research about jobs that are within their top career clusters. They will be collaborating with their classmates to create an informational video that highlights careers within their career cluster. On February 20th the students will have the opportunity to share their projects with their friends and families at our annual 8th Grade STEM and Careers night.
