Skilled Trades and Safety Career Expo – October 10th
The 3rd annual Skilled Trades and Safety Career Expo is on October 10th at the Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard, Ohio. This event is for all 10th and 11th-grade students in Hilliard City Schools, Interested Seniors, and Tolles Students.
The Skilled Trades and Safety Career Expo provides knowledge and hands-on experiences to students for pathways for viable career opportunities after graduation. The event is partnered with the Ohio Contractors Association, the Associated General Contractors of America, Building Trades Council, Norwich Twp Fire and EMS, and Hilliard Police Department. With there being such a high demand for skilled trades and safety careers, it is important for students to be educated on various career options.

Ruling Our eXperiences (ROX)
We are excited to be able to bring the Ruling Our eXperiences (ROX) program for girls to our 9-11 grade girls this year. ROX is a co-curricular program focused on the education, safety, health and empowerment of girls. We know that being a girl can be challenging. Girls are struggling with a number of issues unique to being a girl and technology, media influence and social pressures can make these issues all the more challenging. ROX is a program that will provide your student with a safe place where she can talk about these issues and learn new skills to manage these pressures, develop as a female leader and gain the confidence to rule her own experiences! Please complete this application if you are interested in having your student be involved in ROX or your student could self-refer! This group will be held during the school day and during a lunch or study hall.
