Longview Public Schools, JH Kelly, IBEW Local 48 presented award

Workforce Southwest Washington (WSW) presented the Excellence in Workforce Partnership Award to Longview Public Schools, JH Kelly and IBEW Local 48 for working together developing and building the pre-apprenticeship program for Longview high school students.

Pre-apprenticeship program ribbon cutting ceremony

The pre-apprenticeship program came to existence through the hard work of Jill Diehl, Director of Career and College Readiness, working together with executives from JH Kelly and IBEW Local 48. JH Kelly provided much needed funding and expertise in guiding and developing the program. IBEW Local 48, along with several other trade unions, were instrumental in the planning, curriculum and development of the program.

Longview Public Schools is committed to providing a great education and career options to high school graduates. “With the amazing support of JH Kelly, IBEW 48 and other trade unions, Longview students will graduate high school with the option of direct entry into an apprentice program, enrolling in college or going into the workforce,” said Jill Diehl, Director of Career and College Readiness at the District.

The pre-apprenticeship program is open to students across the school district regardless of the high school they attend.

Family Resource Center opens at Monticello

Teachers and support team members across the district are seeing a growing number of kids and families who lack a stable food source and/or housing. To help the kids and families the district opened a Family Resource Center at Monticello Middle School. The resource center gives parents a place to get help and connect with food, housing, mental health or other services. It doesn’t matter which school a child attends – the family resource center is open to help them. The resource center was put together through donations and did not require district funds.

The Daily News wrote a front page story about the resource center that published March 2. This is another example of the district putting extra effort towards helping our kids be successful.

The Family Resource Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 11 am and from 1 pm to 3 pm.

Star Polishers – “All my teachers”

Rachelle and Susan Donahue

Who would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“All my teachers really,” writes Mark Morris 10th grader Rachelle Noel. Rachelle’s current teachers are Mark Patrick, Steve Rooklidge, Susan Donahue (RAL), Betsy Brown, Diondra Beck, Kathryn Miller, and Margaret Forslund.

How did these people make a difference in your life?

Rachelle says, “They all try to help me become the best me possible.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.
