Setting Goals for the New Year- NEW YEAR, NEW YOU! 2021 Let's have fun! With a new year here it’s a great time to start thinking about the plans and goals you will be working on and accomplishing in this year. Here are some tips to help you set new goals and ensure they get accomplished. Getting Started: First, think about the following categories: personal growth, relationships, school, education, spiritual growth, career, finances, and health. Are there any other important areas you would like to focus on this year? Add them to the list! On a 1-10 scale, rate where you are in each category for the current year. Once you have rated yourself on the current year, do the same for where you want to be at the end of next year. The category with the largest increase (more than likely) reflects the highest priority for you. Look at your list, then ask yourself the following questions: Why is it important to me to achieve this? What has prevented me from achieving this? How will I get it? How will I know it worked? (What does your 2020 rating look like?) What can I do more/less of? What do I want to continue? Do you need to change your thinking? An accountability partner is recommended for success. Identify barriers and stay focused. Have Fun and Get Going!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

*Attention Juniors - Class of 2022*

Are you interested in becoming skilled in the trades? Do you enjoy working with your mind AND your hands?

We are excited to announce the return of the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard High School Work Study Program! The intent of this program is to offer students, whose long-term goals include a career in the trades, the opportunity to explore a variety of hands-on options.

Applicants MUST apply in March (TBD) of their Junior year and be available for paid, full time summer employment in between their junior and senior year. Students will attend Klahowya Secondary School during the first semester of their senior year to fulfill graduation requirements and then return to paid, full time employment at PSNS during the second semester of their senior year. The program allows students to rotate through several shops in the shipyard and shadow multiple trades.

The application process is multi-leveled, including creating a USA Jobs account, government resume, and in-person interview. Mr. Miles and Mrs. Gotchall will help walk you through the entire process. Students who are successful in this program may be offered permanent, full time employment immediately following high school graduation.

If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity, please complete the Google Form below and we will contact you soon with more information. Your future starts now!!

The Power of “I’m Sorry”…

Kids mess up and we expect them to make it better. We mess up and what happens? Do you admit your mistake? Do you ignore it and move on? Do you pretend the event never happened? The power of an "I'm sorry" or "You were right" to repair relationships is huge.
