Campbell Soup Labels
The RHS Work Experience Program is collecting Box Tops, Campbell Soup Labels, Tyson A+ labels, and Milk Moola. There is
no need to cut them out neatly as students in the Work Program will cut, sort, and count them. We will then redeem them
and use the money to fund jobs for the students to gain employment skills. Items can be dropped off at the main office
with “Attention: Kim Rollie” on it. Thanks for your support! (2)
Eagan High School Work Experience and Tech Ed Departments are partnering with Construction Tomorrow, (a twin cities
non-profit that introduces students to the trades), to host a DISTRICT event that is open to all ISD 196 high school students.
Construct Tomorrow will be coming to Eagan High School on Thursday, Feb 12, from 8am - noon. During this time, students
will experience hands on introduction to the construction trades.
Rosemount High School is scheduled to attend the event from 8:00-9:15 a.m. This will allow students to view and try out
the stations that are showcased at the event. Transportation will be provided. Students will be required to register and
submit a parent permission form. This will be considered a school authorized absence.
If you have students that are interested in a career in the trades, please encourage them to attend. They may pick up a
registration form and permission slip in the Career Center. These need to be returned by Monday, February 9th in order to
attend. (2)
