Job Olympics

Students in the Essential Skills Classroom program at LNHS participated in the 9th annual Northland Job Olympics at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church on Friday, April 14, 2023.  


Job Olympics mirrors Special Olympics in that students compete and earn recognition for their performances and demonstration of skills, tasks and project completion. However, the Job Olympics, as the name suggests, focuses on vocational skills instead of athletic ability.  More specific areas of concentration were completing job applications, participating in mock interviews, and professional appearance. Additionally, a few of the choices for vocational activities ranged from rolling silverware, bagging groceries, folding laundry and paper shredding.  


In preparation for graduation, post secondary readiness, and future employment, students will select jobs in which they are interested in and begin working on the skills needed to master that specific job. 


Congratulations to all of our Eagles. Please see Here for all of our student recognitions.
