Dear Parents,    

 

     I want to welcome your child to Northeast High School and the Fundamentals of Construction, Structural Systems 1, and Structural Systems 2.    My name is Jason Pennington. Together with your help I hope to make your child's year here rewarding and to teach him/her skills that will be of use to them for the rest of their lives. 

 The primary goal of our program is to standardize construction craft training throughout the country so that both employers and employees will benefit from the training no matter where they are located.   

     Student’s grades will be based on performance points from class participation and modules which will have review questions, a module exam, and a performance profile task, which is designed to measure competency in which the task taught.               

   I encourage you to check your child's progress on power school.  Grades will be posted as they are completed and/or weekly..

    A copy of the state standards will be linked on this page. Parents, please read the attached copy of the classroom rules and consequences. These rules are in place and will be enforced.  

     Parents, I would like for your child to receive the utmost this class has to offer.  I am requesting your help.  Please encourage your child to participate in class, be on time, and bring required materials.  Feel free to contact me at Northeast High School (931)648-5640 ext. 1715 or [email protected]

 

Thank You,

Jason Pennington
