Shortly after Christmas break, the high school holds its “Winterim” program. This special weeks consists of many job shadows, career counseling, and visits to area colleges. The job shadows are arranged by our guidance and career counselor, Mrs. Lorraine Potter, according to each student’s interests. During Winterim 2017, students spent time at St. Luke’s Hospital, J W Morton Advertising Agency, the Cedar Rapids Fire Department, an agency that provides speech and hearing services, Rockwell Collins, and several other companies.
The students also underwent mock job interviews with professionals Mrs. Potter engaged for the project.
