LHS Employment Today

October 11, 2019

From 1:45-2:45 on Monday through Thursday Mrs. Peterson's Employment Today group learns and practices job skills at local businesses and around the high school building. Fridays are used to balance the week with experiences in leisure and special interest activities. On Friday, October 11, for example, the group visited the Kearney Area Animal Shelter to volunteer. Students helped by cleaning the glass in and around the cat room, filling bird feeders, distributing rawhide toys to dogs, and folding laundered items. They impressed staff with their efficiency and good work ethic. Students were eager to meet the animals on this fun service project. They plan to return monthly to walk dogs, socialize animals, and continue serving the community.
