Fort Calhoun High School welcomed back 7 graduates on December 16, 2022, for an alumni panel to speak to current seniors about their post-secondary paths. Topics included the alumni’ current career paths (ranging from college and ROTC to entering the workforce) and what advice they would give the current seniors. Seniors received valuable information to help them plan for life after high school. The event is just one example of how the school prepares its students for college, career, and life. This alumni panel is an event the school plans to have on an annual basis. So if any alumni are interested in being part of the panel in future years, please contact Mr. Wemhoff, Mrs. Hernandez, or Mrs. Krambeck.
Congratulations to our December PBIS Winners! They were L-R, Penny Keough, Alisa Taylor, Blakely Aufenkamp and Thomas Jensen. Keep up the good work everyone and have a great break!
