Willamette High School
On Tuesday, 10 of our Willamette students currently enrolled in our Sports, Exercise, Health Science course taught by Devon Vendetti had a once in a lifetime opportunity to get an up close and personal view of the life of a heart surgeon. McKenzie Willamette Medical Center surgeon, John Armitage, led our students through an educational experience including both learning new skills while exploring their career path interests. Students learned surgical skills as they were taught how to tie surgical knots, dissected a pig heart, and learned about the value of an EKG. Students also had the opportunity to meet and ask questions of several different health professionals from hospital administrators, surgeons, physician assistants, surgical techs, and many more.
While as a society we have largely moved beyond trying to block social media, monitoring your teen’s online presence is of paramount importance. The choices they make in high school (and post online) can affect their quality of life now and later as they are considering a career and/or entrance to a college. Colleges do check student’s online presence. Check this article out.
Student use of social media can have an impact on others your help and supervision could ensure that the impact is a positive one. Check out what this high school student did to combat the negative and help others feel good.
If you are wondering about different apps and which you will allow your teen to have, here are some considerations you might find informative.
Let’s help our students to keep our social media positive!
