CAREER WEEK THANKS
From March 18 to March 22 the junior class at Telstar High School took time out of the classroom to job shadow people in the community and beyond during Telstar’s annual Career Week. We would like to thank those of you who helped our students with their projects. We acknowledge that it took time and energy on your part to teach and show them the ropes of your profession. We feel it is a great experience for kids wanting hands-on experience in a profession they may choose to pursue. It helps give them direction as they finish their last year and a half of high school. They returned to school very positive about their experiences. On Friday, April 5th, juniors shared their projects with the school in a Career Week Fair. Slide shows and posters enabled other students to see what their experiences were like and many questions were asked as a result. We appreciate the excitement you generated in our students.
In particular, we would like to thank the following businesses who hosted Telstar juniors: Stephens Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Room, Radiology, Obstetrics, and Physical Therapy departments, Crescent Park School, Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School, Norway Animal Hospital, Dr. Whitney, DDS, Farmers Insurance Company, Bethel Area Chamber of Commerce, Dan’s Automotive, Bethel Animal Hospital, D.A. Wilson’s Garage, Jade’s Salon, Shamrock Sports and Entertainment of Portland, Responsible Pet Care, Sunday River, Sunday River Ski Patrol, Western Maine Mountain Clinic, ZIS Publishing, LLC of Albany, N.Y., Tom's of Maine, Chandler Funeral Home, Hannaford Pharmacy, Ken's Yamaha, Woodstock School, Norm Lewis Game Warden, Rumford Hospital, Boston Children's Hospital, Ledgeview Living Center, Maine State Police, Cafe DiCocoa, Brian's Bistro and Brooks Brothers.
If you or your business has interest in hosting students during future Career Weeks or you have interest in having students do internships with you, please contact the high school office at 824-2136.
