This has been a busy month getting things ready for the first group of students at the Pendleton Technology and Trades Center. The new labs are now operational and we are very excited to now welcome students into the facility for the Culinary Arts and Industry & Engineering classes. There will be an Open House for the CTE Advisory Board and School Board members on February 28th from 2:00-3:00. A community Open House is tentatively scheduled on April 13th during evening conferences.
On inservice day, staff from PHS and SMS came in to tour the building and learn more about the programs. One lucky member from each group won an engraved coffee mug after watching the “raster” process on our new laser cutter/engraver. A huge “thank you” goes out to Pendleton Foundation Trust for funding the $20,235.00 high-tech machine! The video above shows the machine at work making a plaque for this piece of equipment recognizing the Pendleton Foundation trust for their grant. The picture above is of one of the coffee mugs that was "engraved" with the machine.
