School briefs - Hermitage Technical Center

Many of the students are working on getting back into the flow of waking up early to their alarms and working hard since their return to school after winter break.

Hermitage Technical Center was happy to welcome students back to their second home and tech center family.

As students begin to crowd the hallways again, teachers are scurrying to turn in drafts of their mid-term exams for administrative approval. Students are busy making up final grades and gaining an understanding of the topics taught before review.

The Graphic Communications class is finishing t-shirt orders for the Hermitage Tech administration. These will be given to the support staff at the school as gifts. Graphic Communications students are also completing the chapter tests. In preparation for the upcoming two weeks, classes at Hermitage Tech are taking time and making sure that everyone has what they need to complete their courses midterm.
