Welding:
Crestwood students have the opportunity to take several welding classes at the NICC Cresco Center. Some of those classes include: Welding Blueprint Reading, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, Intro to Welding, Safety and Health, and Flame Plasma Cutting Fundamentals. 
Welding offers rewarding and challenging career opportunities both indoors and outdoors in a variety of industries ranging from repair jobs to fabrication and construction activities. 
Welding has become complex and technical and requires a great deal of knowledge to be able to select the proper process for critical work. Excellent hand-eye coordination are attributes of highly-skilled and well-paid welders.

The demand for welders is high, and technical training provides students with improved opportunities and career progression. 


MAP Testing
Over the past few weeks students have been taking the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test. These tests determine your child’s instructional level and measure academic growth from year to year in the areas of mathematics, reading, language usage, and science. MAP tests are unique in that they are adaptive tests your child took on a computer. That means that the test became more difficult the more questions your child answered correctly. When your child incorrectly answered a question, the test became easier. Therefore, your child took a test specifically created for his or her learning level. In addition, your child should have had the opportunity to learn the information presented on the test because the tests are aligned with the curriculum.  

More detailed information about your child's performance on the MAP test will be available at parent/teacher conferences which will be held on Tuesday, November 3rd and Thursday, November 5th.
