McKee Cisco Networking Academy Students @ Bay Dental at the Point

Check out the photographs of our current Cisco Networking Academy students. They were accompanied by Success Via Apprenticeship (SVA) Mastrandrea,after school, to a Work Based Learning (WBL) experience site called "Bay Dental at the Pointe PC." They were tasked with the installation of network cable and jack / drop termination for the dental office's network The students did essentially the same job of the "integrator" that an SCA / DOE operative would do on a new construction build, 

This event occurred on 1-7-2016 after school, It is a mix of seniors and juniors onsite.

Alumni Day, January 13, 2016

15 alumni stopped by to do talks from 1st to 9th period on Wednesday, January 13, 2016 about their experiences in post secondary institutions. There were big hugs and smiles throughout the day. The most compelling moments, having the panel of college students inform present McKee students about the knowledge they gained from McKee; the influence of AVID on their organizational skills; the competencies they have acquired; academic, fiscal, social and emotional accountability; the growth mindset and the "real world."

I am beaming. The energy and enthusiasm pulsed through the school with alumni hugging teachers and assistant principals, students that they knew.  

Acquaintances and strangers asked the college students after the panel more questions or comments in regards to the type of environment at the post secondary institution that the student was interested in attending.

It was such a neat experience. A 15 out of 10 on the Way Cool meter.

 I have to be mindful of  branding.  I have to get a banner that goes above the top part of the white board or SMARTboard in each classroom with the McKee logo.
