The community is invited to see the amazing student talent and discover the vast educational opportunities available for Struthers City Schools’ students at the District Showcase on Thursday, May 18.
From 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the public will be able to enjoy student art, music, and educational exhibits at Struthers High School (111 Euclid Avenue, Struthers, Ohio). Artwork from students from elementary through high school will be on display. There will be live musical performances during the event. Additional exhibits showcasing the opportunities and amazing student work from courses and extracurricular activities available to students in the district will be on display.
The community will have the opportunity to see and support the work of students in three courses that provide students experience in various industries. Two of the district’s recently added courses that offer industry-recognized credentialing - Cats Cafe and Wildcat Construction - will be at the event showcasing their work. Students in Cats Cafe can earn hospitality credentialing as they operate a cafe in the high school which is open weekly to students and staff in the building. The Cafe students will be serving snacks and refreshments at the District Showcase. This year is the first year courses offering credentialing opportunities in the construction industry have been offered in the district, and wood-crafted items made by the students in the class will be available for sale. In addition, the students in Wildcat Den will be selling spiritwear and school apparel that the class works together to design and produce. All sales during the District Showcase event will be cash only.
“We’re excited to share the amazing things our students have been doing with the community,” says Sarah Herrholtz, Director of Student Achievement for Struthers City Schools. “Not only is there incredible talent in the student population, but the district has added a number of pathways to prepare students for success beyond high school with new credentialing opportunities, electives, and a robust extracurricular offering.”
