Junior Job Shadow Tuesday November 25
Defining a “Job Shadow” Experience: A job shadow is a structured career activity where a student follows an employee at a specific location to learn about a particular occupation or industry. The purpose of job shadowing is to help students explore a range of career options and to better understand the demands of a particular job. The employee who is hosting the student is called an adult mentor. A high school student's job shadowing experience usually lasts one school day. The student experiences a one-on-one relationship with an adult mentor observing activities and gaining valuable information about his/her chosen career.
Job shadowing helps students accomplish the following:
➢ Gain information about possible future career interests
➢ Observe the daily routine of an adult mentor
➢ Observe the system of the host professional
➢ Gain an insight of the academic, technical, and personal skills required by particular occupation
➢ Gain an understanding of the connection between school and work
➢ Gain information to assist students in goal setting and educational planning
Ram Pride Shines
The Gorham High School community (Students, Faculty, and Others) gathered in the Gym at 6:00 this morning to take on the food school spirit challenge. The school spirit challenge is a friendly competition between schools to show school pride and spirit, all while helping the community. The program is designed to promote the community and good stewardship with students of high schools in Central and Southern Maine through an ongoing food drive to benefit the Good Shepherd Food Bank. The event was amazing and we had a great turn out. Our community also brought in a ton of food, ALL of which will be delivered to the Gorham Food Pantry on Monday. A Very BIG Thank You to all of those that donated.
6000 lbs and counting Food donations were delivered yesterday to the Gorham Food Pantry. Volunteers gathered to sort and organize the donations. We want to thank ALL of those that have already donated and remind everyone that the spirit challenge is a friendly competition between schools to show school pride and spirit, all while helping the community. We are collecting non perishable food items until October 31st ALL donations can be dropped off at Gorham High School. HELP GHS Win the school spirit by donating to a great cause and helping your neighbors! Special THANKS to the Gorham Fire department. They sent over volunteers that helped to get the 6000 lbs of food from the parking lot into the pantry!
