Students Inducted into National Technical Honor Society
Students Inducted into National Technical Honor Society
       Penta Career Center students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) during a ceremony on March 25, 2021.  This year 11 students were honored for their career-technical achievements.   
      The NTHS is similar to the National Honor Society at comprehensive high schools where students are recognized for scholarship, leadership, service, and character.  Membership in the NTHS at Penta requires students to maintain excellent attendance, good behavior and a 3.5 overall grade point average.  In addition, inductees must meet the seven attributes of NTHS (skills, honesty, service, responsibility, scholarship, citizenship, and leadership).

Schedule 1 Begins March 16
Schedule 1 Begins March 16
     Per the March 11, 2021 letter from Superintendent Edward Ewers, Penta Career Center will return to Schedule 1 beginning March 16, 2021.  As a reminder, Schedule 1 is when all students report to campus Tuesday - Friday with Monday being a remote learning day. The schedule change was approved by the Penta Board of Education on March 10, 2021.  This move by the Board is, in many ways, based on our local data related to COVID cases, as well as the modification to the quarantine rules released by the Wood County Health Department. Further details of the health department's updated guidance can be found on our website at https://www.pentacareercenter.org/Announcements.aspx
