8th graders had the opportunity of attending the CTE Expo 2020. We are going to start giving a big thank you to the Yuma Union High School District for partnering with SWJH and making our students part of the Career & Technical Education Expo of the programs offered at SLHS. Our students enjoyed experiencing each of the different careers which got them started on planning on their future. These are great opportunities for our students, which we know are talented and will continue shining once in High School.
