Mrs. La Grange's Technology Classes
The students in Mrs. La Grange’s classes are studying a variety of areas of technology this year.
Students in the Internet and Computing Core (IC3) class have been working on achieving their certification in IC3, a globally recognized certification. Students with an IC3 certification are one step ahead in the pursuit of a career or a college degree!
The IC3 certification is an accepted standard of basic computing knowledge. Many consider the certification fundamental to academic knowledge and a minimum necessity for employment in an office setting. The American Council on Education (ACE) recommends the IC3 certification for one college credit in general education and computer literacy.
These students have also completed a course in Comptia’s Strata curriculum. This curriculum provides the student with a comprehensive knowledge of PC components, functionality, compatibility, and related technology topics. Once students complete the basic computer fundamentals, they have the opportunity to enhance their IT experience with the Comptia A+ and Network+ (N+) certifications. Students in these classes can exit high school with two to three technology certifications that are helpful in both college and career choices.

The culinary arts students are getting ready to learn to cook with meat and to do cake decorating. They are also getting ready to do the staff appreciation dinner, and they are excited about it. The dinner is lots of hard work, and it is very rewarding for the students. The students all work hard, and they have fun learning new skills. They are learning to do tablescapes, and they will use these skills at the staff dinner and at the Show What You Know Expo.
