On Friday, February 21, our eighth-grade students had the opportunity to tour the Chester Country Technical College High School (TCHS). The students were greeted by students and staff in the school cafeteria before exploring the various course options that TCHS has to offer. Students were given hands-on experience with everything from cosmetology to auto repair and everything in between. A good day was had by all and that wasn’t even the half of it.
The other half of the day, the 8th grade was fortunate enough to receive financial literacy training from the Franklin Mint. By providing real-world examples, students garnered a new understanding and appreciation for the intricacies of sustaining a personal budget. It was a rewarding day that will certainly serve all of our students well as they head into the future.
