By Herald Staff

Cape May County Technical School Distrist
“Why Choose Tech?”, a special presentation for 7th and 8th grade students and their parents will be part of the Cape May County Technical School District’s annual open house evening, Wednesday, Dec. 2. The short video will run every 20 minutes beginning at 6:40 through 8 p.m. in the multi-activity center to introduce parents and students to the school, career education, academic classes and co-curricular activities to help them make an informed choice for their student’s high school education.
Open house activities include something for everyone with programs and presentations throughout the entire school district. Adults considering the practical nursing class, twilight cosmetology or other educational programs at the school can get a head start on the application and testing process and information will be available for the dozens of vocational and avocational courses through the evening program for the winter/spring semester that begins in January.
Digital, animated signs at each hallway intersection will direct visitors to various areas of the school including the newly refurbished communication arts technology studio and recently updated facilities for the high school and adult cosmetology classes with specific areas for facials, pedicures and other salon services. A colorful display of college pennants in the cafeteria will document the choices of students who have graduated from Tech.
The evening is open to the public from 6:30 to 8:30 and everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments and pastries prepared by the pastry/baking students will be served in the cafeteria. For information about the open house call the public relations office at 465-2161, ext. 661. For high school admission information call 465-2161, ext. 643.
In other “Tech” news, Two students at the Cape May County Technical School District were recently awarded Donna Wise- Kelleher Memorial Cosmetology scholarships. The scholarship fund was established in memory of Donna Wise-Kelleher, a graduate of the school’s cosmetology program, a teaching assistant at the school, a member of the school’s Advisory Council and owner of Salon Allure in N. Cape May.
Members of the Cape May Tech FFA Chapter were one of 40 teams participating in the 2009 National FFA Nursery/Landscape Career Development Event in October at the 82nd National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. Participants identified plant specimens according to their technical and common names and took a multiple-choice exam. Members also performed hands-on activities ranging from landscape drawing to interpersonal relations. It is one of 23 different national events that use the fun of competition to connect classroom learning and careers. Team members were Jimmie Ferguson, Carly Hilton and Katie Mumford with JoAnn Sopchak, left, their FFA advisor.
St. Ann Regional School
Sister Sheila Murphy, Principal of St. Ann Regional along with Student Council moderator Marie Peltier, offer their thanks to the school community for donating numerous food items to the pantry at St. Ann church.
The pantry makes up weekly bags of food & makes them available to Wildwood residents who need some assistance. The pantry has been running low and even had to close down for a short time due to the high demand. Sister is grateful for the generosity of our families, faculty and staff.
Sister Sheila Murphy along wth 2nd grade teacher Colleen McNulty, invited parents & grandparents to the annual tradition of why we shouldn’t eat turkey! The students dressed up in costume and used props to try and convince their audience to choose a different meal on
Thanksgiving. Lots of laughs and a holiday party followed.
Wildwood Catholic High School
Wildwood Catholic High School’s student council recently sponsored its annual food drive to support needy area residents. The school collected hundreds of items that were then donated and delivered to the St. Ann’s food pantry.
Be sure to catch Wildwood Catholic’s production of “The Sound of Music”! The final performance will take place on Wednesday, November 25th at 8 p.m Tickets are $8 and $10, and are available in advance at Wildwood Catholic or at the door. Please call 522-7257 for more information.
