Let's Be Successful in '23-'24!!! (Please copy and paste any of the pdf links below into your web browser for helpful information. Please reach out to Mr. Lane if you need access to a file, or if you have any questions.)
Welcome all! We are still working to connect everyone on Class Dojo, but we will be there soon! We have eased into CTE Health Science by studying team building, career readiness concepts, personal skills and abilities, hard and soft skills, and SMART goal setting. Most students have completed the setup of their Paxton Patterson web-based learning accounts, and next week we will work to complete the Lab Basics orientation module. This will give students a basic understanding of how to complete independent, group, and teacher-led work within the program. Students will begin exploring various health science careers soon, so stay tuned!
Friendly Reminder: We have had some difficulty remembering login information for the Paxton Patterson program. Students should learn their school email (and check it often) and their lunch number. The Paxton Patterson program student login credentials are as follows:
Login Email (User Name): Student school email
Password: Student lunch number
School email format (Gmail) is as follows:
first 4 characters of student first name, first 4 characters of student last name, last 4 digits of student lunch email@example.com
