Helena High School students celebrated the spooky holiday by raising money for a student with cancer.

Claire Stone has been battling cancer for a year and a half.  Today her classmates suited up in their Halloween costumes for a fundraiser to help cover the cost of her medical expenses, something she didn’t even know was being planned till she saw the signs for the event decking the halls of Helena High.

Claire: "I was very emotional. I was so happy that people are like having fun for Halloween but also helping me."

Students and faculty alike went all out of the event. The halls were filled with kids dressed up.

E-NDMS Over Capacity

Tags: 

Due to unusually high traffic, E-NDMS is struggling to keep up with demand.  Unfortunately, there's not much we can do on the administrative side other than ride out the storm.  If you don't absolutely need to be in the system this afternoon, it might be a good idea to wait until later this evening or tomorrow.  

Thank you for  your patience.

JAG Program Implemented In Nevada to Address High School Drop-Out Crisis

As Nevada continues to diversify our economy and get our fellow citizens back to work, we believe that the discussion about the outlook of Nevada’s future must begin with the state of our education system. The number of high school drop-outs in our state remains at staggering proportions and the unemployment rate for youth stands at 17.3 percent. We cannot continue to accept these sobering statistics. We must work to change the future – and we believe we have begun to do so for at-risk high school students.

E-NDMS Maintenance

E-NDMS requires immediate maintenance and will be down for a while. It will be back online as soon as possible.  Thank you for your patience.

No Progress for America's Teens in 2013 Teen Summer Job Market

Friday’s Employment Situation report for August 2013 revealed that the U.S. employers added 169,000 net new payroll jobs in August. The revised payroll employment estimates for the entire summer (June-July-August) revealed a gain of 445,000 jobs. Unfortunately, none of these payroll jobs were obtained by nation’s teens (16-19). Despite the fact that both the Center for Labor Market Studies and national job placement firm (Challenger-Gray-Christmas) had earlier projected that teen would benefit with improved summer job market. This development unfortunately did not occur.
