This year the Southern Nebraska Conference Cross Country meet was held at Doane University in Crete, Nebraska. Doane has a true cross country course with hills, uneven ground, and tight corners. SNC medals the top 15 girl finishers and the top 15 boy finishers.
Coach Wright reported, "This year the Red Raiders had two individual medalists. KaLee Fanning placed 12th and Brayton Jarosik placed 9th. We also had several athletes get season PR's at the SNC meet, Joanie Schultz, Kacie Herbek, KaLee Fanning, Cole Troudt, Chase DeVries, and Theo Kathman. We are looking forward to Districts this Thursday at Wildwood Lake State Wildlife Management Area."
The Red Raiders will be in action next on Thursday, October 11th at Wildwood Lake State Wildlife Management Area at 4:00 pm for girls and 4:45 pm for boys.
Saturday morning both the L/N and the Sandy Creek band members were up bright and early to participate in the marching of the 2018 Harvest of Harmony Parade. Both bands represented SCU #5 very well.
THe L/N band was entry number 102. L/N band director, Melanie Chohon said, "The band kids have been working hard since August to get to where they performed on Saturday. For such a small band they are able to put out a lot of sound and make it sound very musical. We also got a lot of compliments on how professional they looked while they were marching and how they handled themselves in a professional manner. They were a nice representation of Lawrence-Nelson High School. I'm very proud of how far they have come in just the last 8 weeks!
The Sandy Creek band marched in spot number 157. Band director Brandon Baxter indicated, "The band worked hard and had fun. We left the high school around 6:45 so it was an early start to the day, but everyone was on time and that's a teacher's dream. It was a chilly morning, but we rose to the occasion and put on a great show for the thousands lining the streets and for the people watching on tv. The students had a great time as well, which is the most important part of it."
What is Nebraska CAPS? It stands for the Nebraska Center for Advanced Professional Studies, and it is fully funded by the South Central Nebraska Unified School District #5, and while the process and academic curriculum has been in place for the past two school years, the building is set to be done in December 2018.
While the video linked below, which was created by Ty Schweer and Austin Wilson for their NCAPS Spring 2017 career project, should answer several of your questions, we want to know if you have more! Some of the more frequently asked questions and answers are as follows...
1. If I enter a pathway, am I stuck in it for the rest of the school year or my high school career?
Absolutely not! Students can change pathways at semester break, just like they can change classes at semester break!
2. What if my relationship with my business partner just isn't working out?
While we will try to convince you to work through some issues, we also understand there are times that this might not seem possible. If this is the case, either from the student's end or the mentor's ends, changes can be made to the process.
3. Will I still be able to take four years of math/science classes?
Yes! Many of our students taking college classes are also taking Physics or Chemistry, and/or Pre-Calc or College Algebra, just as an example.
4. What pathways are currently being offered, and which ones are for college credit?
5. What classes are offered? How many students are in the classes?
