E-Term '19

ENRICHMENT. EXPERIMENT. EXCITING. EDUCATION.
 
What is E-Term?
 
The E stands for Enrichment. This is a one-week, hands-on learning experience to spark new interest in unexplored subjects. E-term is sandwiched in between the end of the 3rd quarter and the beginning of the 4th quarter and is open to all junior and senior high students. It is a time set aside to revive our students from the long winter months and prepare them for future opportunities they may not have already experienced. 
 
Students have three options available:
 
1) Attend E-Term classroom sessions
2) Participate in a job shadowing opportunity
3) Engage in a mission or learning trip
 
E-Term Classroom:
 
Monday, March 11th - Friday, March 15th

Classroom Assembly:
 
An E-Term assembly will occur on Monday, February 11th to familiarize students with course selection. At this time, students will be able to preview videos created by E-Term teachers, read about coursework in a special E-Term booklet, and discuss options with fellow students, their parents, and the guidance department (if needed).
 
Videos will be posted on our main website (mcseaglesoh.org) immediately following this special E-Term assembly.
 
Job Shadowing Opportunity:
 
Students who choose the local internship option are encouraged to begin the process of pursuing work immediately. 
 
Benefits of a Job Shadowing Experience: 
 
  • Helping students choose their major for college
  • Connecting students with a network of experienced people who can mentor them
  • Inspiring students to find a career choice
  • Teaching students important skill sets needed to complete a task
  • Experiencing the "real world" and what life will be like before, during, or after college.
 
Students may start the job shadowing process by searching for local businesses and organizations in their areas of interest to see if they offer job shadowing opportunities. Using personal contacts (family, friends, coaches, etc.) and local resources (job boards, libraries, etc). are additional ways to find a quality job shadowing opportunity. 
 
Students selecting this option will be required to give a presentation containing their experiences and observations.
