Projects

PROJECTS AND MS MERRISSA

Our new Social Studies teacher Ms. Merrissa brings with her over a decade of experience with Project Based Learning (PBL). PBL is a teaching method that focuses on student interest and can be teacher led, co-led, or student led. 

At Career Pathways we use PBL for teacher and  co-led projects. The idea is that the teacher and student come up with a theme or an idea that the student is interested in pursuing. Then a student can use a variety of ways to demonstrate and report what they have learned.

The teacher serves as a guide to encourage and at times redirect the student to ensure they are learning the necessary standards and sharing their work to demonstrate what they have learned. 

These pictures are of poster presentations. Most of the projects have been slideshows and papers.
Fall Plants and Animals

From Ms. Jo, our Special Education Coordinator: It’s the season! What season do you say?! FALL!! So many wonderful things to love about fall, the breezy weather, wearing sweatshirts, the leaves changing colors! The staff here at Career Pathways love fall too, and have celebrated in different classes. 

Career Pathways staff were able to collect a bunch of pumpkins, and students were able to design, paint and carve a pumpkin in different science classes! It was a blast to see their creativity spark, and all the different unique pumpkins that were creative. So from us to you, happy fall! 

Remember the eggs in the September News? They have hatched! In the Plants and Animals elective, students created some fancy fall wear for our baby chicks to strut their stuff down the runway. You heard me right, we had a baby chick fashion show. What could ever top that? 

Hot Lunch

Ms. Cristina is our Office Manager and she wears many hats.

One of her most important hats is Food and Nutrition Manager. Ms. Cristina took this picture of two Career Pathways students on a recent Pizza Day. Every Friday our food service provider orders Pizza from our local Domino's Pizza for our lunch.

Career Pathways has community eligibility to serve breakfast and lunch free of charge to our students.

Please contact Ms. Cristina with questions about our food service program - cristina@cpathmn.org

COVID FUNDING AND COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

The federal government has given schools additional funding to support learners and staff during the Covid 19 pandemic. This can be anything from field trips to face masks. Ms. Liz and Dr. Joan co-lead the committee that gathers feedback and ideas from the school community. 

Please visit our website’s Covid 19 Updates page to view our Safe Return to In Person Learning Plan. Your feedback is a requirement for the funding.

Please email office@cpathmn.org with any questions or ideas.  Thank you!
