PHS FAMILY NIGHT: PATHWAYS TO HIGH-PAYING JOBS
The Pontiac Regional Chamber in partnership with Pontiac School District and General Motors Global Propulsion Systems offered Pontiac High School an opportunity to learn the skills needed to land local jobs.
Local companies like General Motors, AUCH, Lee Builders, United Shore Mortgage, Gateway Construction, Marriott Hotels, Oakland County Government and many others were on hand for this networking event.
Parents and their children had an opportunity to learn which courses best correlate with the type of work each company offers. Company reps also shared information about internships, apprenticeships and how on-the-job training and college pursuits match up.
GIRLS GET WISE
One hundred girls from Pontiac High, Pontiac Middle and the International Technology Academy program recently visited the Global Propulsion Systems building for a day. The Get WISE Program is designed to increase the number of girls and women pursuing degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics while fostering their future success.
LEARNING AS ONE - JAPAN AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
Pontiac School District hosted the "Learning As One" Japanese delegation as they celebrated the 40th anniversary of joining forces with the city of Pontiac in sisterhood. Seven Japanese students and three teachers were able to visit our schools for a glance at a day-in-the-life of a PSD student. They also visited local businesses while touring Metro Detroit.
