Welcome to Vocational Preparation 2
This class focuses on transition to the world of work and is designed for juniors and seniors that have successfully completed Vocational Preparation I. Vocational Preparation 2 provides an opportunity to work at The Eagle’s Nest Thrift Store/stockroom or an off campus work experience. Students are required to either have a job they found on their own (Co-Op) or they must take a volunteer position to participate in Vocational Prep 2. Students will be required to sign a contract with an employer or supervisor, and complete weekly employment record sheets (timesheets). Students will complete a resume', write a business letter, learn soft skills needed for the world of work, complete a variety of applications, and do career assessement to help them decide the next step after high school.
Welcome to Introduction to Exceptionalities
This class teaches students how to assist students that live with a disability during their Vocational Preparation class. Voc. Prep students will explore their strengths and needs in relation to school and careers. They will be given interest assessments that will help them to identify careers to learn about. Students will also learn about communication and job skills in the workplace. Job applications, resumes, interviewing, and appropriate dress and hygiene for the workplace will also be addressed. In addition, this class allows the students to work an on-campus work site with supervision. This is where YOU, as an exceptionalities student, will act as a student’s job coach while they are at their on-campus jobs. There are a number of different jobs to do around the school and will be assigned to the students upon interest, maturity, and behavior. Exceptionalities students will also go through Montana Employment Specialist Training (INVEST).
Welcome Study Skills
Study Skills is a one-credit class especially designed to assist students with successful completion of class work, writing papers, studying for quizzes and tests, as well as teach students study strategies using supplemental materials and to assist with self-advocacy.

I have missed seeing and spending time with all of you. I am looking forward to us starting this new adventure together and increasing our learning. It will be a challenge but we will work everything out in time. Let’s end this school year on a positive note!
As we move forward I will post assignments in a variety of ways:
Googe Classroom (I have sent an invitation to everyone via your school email/included parent and guardians as well)
The calendar on my school page
Please be aware that Quarter 3 ends on April 3rd and grades will be posted April 7th. You are responsible for all assignments up until Friday March 13th, the day before spring break. I will accept late assignments thru Friday April 3, 2020 until 3:00 PM. If you are missing work, it is your responsibility to get it to me. If you need assistance you must reach out to me as soon as possible so we can figure out a plan.
It is very important that you check your school emails several times a day to make sure you have seen the assignments. I will assign classwork on Mondays and it will be due on Friday of that week unless I post otherwise.
All Q Checks are due the day they are assigned. To complete Q checks it is exatly like we have done all year but you will need to do it in Google Docs and share it with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I have you multiple periods in voc Prep 2 you must do one for each period (yes you many copy and paste). Here is the information you will need:
Missing Assignments and when you will be getting them to me:
You will list all missing assignments from the date of the Q Check (i.e. Q Check date is 3/30 then all work not completed prior to that date is written down). I am only looking for missing assignments in MY classes unless I post otherwise.
I will also set up video conferencing as follows through Google Hangouts found in the Google Classroom and you can join by phone or computer
