    Medical Explorers Program- The third Thursday of each month, from 6:30-8:00 PM,  a different medical specialty is spotlighted at the Reading Hospital/Tower Health.  This program is FREE.  Past students have learned a great deal and have made contacts to shadow professionals.  Students should register by calling 610-988-HELP.  This has obviously been postponed for the time being.  But once we return to school, look for the monthly topics I post on my door and include in morning announcements the week prior to each program.


    Berks Career & Technology Center- "On-time" applications for the 2020-2021 school year were due December 4, 2019However, applications are still being accepted, as some programs currently have slots available, while other programs may develop openings as students move out of the county or decide not to attend BCTC next year.  If you need a blank application form, or need assistance with completing and submitting the application you have in hand, please email me, at claben@hasdhawks.org


    Students Interacting with Business- Each year the Berks Business Education Coalition (BBEC) sponsors a day in which our 9th graders visit a local business. General employability skills are emphasized, including communication, good attendance, understanding of a business' purpose, and a positive attitude. The next date for this field trip will most likely occur in late September of 2020.
