Discover MNPS kicks off at Cane Ridge High School
Local real estate agents visited Cane Ridge High School on March 9 to kickoff Discover MNPS, an initiative created by MNPS’ community partner PENCIL to introduce community members to neighborhood schools and the impactful work taking place in public education. Discover MNPS invites members of the community to tour facilities, meet teachers and staff members, and see the learning process in action by visiting classrooms.
Attendees started the morning with an introduction from Cane Ridge High School’s Principal, Michelle Sanchez, and were then divided into groups for tours led by student ambassadors. The ambassadors showed the realtors in-session classrooms focused on programming in the Academy of Law, Academy of Health Management, Academy of Architecture and Construction and the Academy of Arts and Communications. The day concluded with a lunch in the library and the opportunity to hear from a panel of business partners engaged with the Academy of Architecture and Construction who have been involved in career-readiness programs at benefitting students at Cane Ridge for years. The partners shared their personal experiences and provided time for questions.
Discover MNPS tours will be held four times a year with two events in the spring and two in the fall. Each tour location will be in a different school and cluster visitors can learn about the district’s diverse academic offerings and unique school cultures.
