Sunset Ridge Middle School Celebrates CTE Month
By the Sunset Ridge Middle School CTE Team
Jordan School District
Sunset Ridge Middle School is celebrating CTE Month with a variety of activities. We kicked off the month with our CTE students of the month. We nominate students each month for being outstanding in CTE. We present the students of the month with a water bottle, with the CTE logo on it, and a certificate.
We had a 7th grade assembly highlighting work-based learning. We invited Life Flight to come and teach our students about different careers in the health field. They were great and passed out Life Flight shirts and CTE prizes.
We have a CTE question of the day on the morning announcements. We ask a trivia question and have the students put their guess in a bucket. We randomly pick four answers. Those students who have guessed the right answer receive a prize from CTE.
We had back-sacks made with “CTE—Helping You Shoulder Life Skills” imprinted on the back, we ordered tape measures with the saying “CTE—Improving Skills Inch by Inch!” and ordered beanie caps with CTE embroidered on the front. The students love them!
We ordered pencils with “Sharpen Your Skills with CTE!” printed on each one. We are passing these out to every student in our registration assemblies later in February. That way every student is prepared to register and hopefully will see the importance of registering for CTE classes.
We are passing out Life Savers® candies with labels that read “Lifesaving Skills Are Learned in CTE.” We are also passing out Dum Dums® suckers with tags that say “Don’t be a Dum Dum. Sign up for CTE!”
We have posters about CTE Intro placed all over the school, we have TV ads on the school TV’s highlighting CTE month, and we have our CTE teachers on the morning announcements showing prizes and encouraging students to sign up for CTE classes.
We love CTE and are excited to celebrate CTE month this year!
