Video and Film Production
Five of our Video and Film Production students attended the Ojai Film Festival on the Student Film Maker Program on November 2nd. Students attended workshop and discussion with Industry professionals in the film industry and learned about screen writing, film production, and how stunts are being done. Students have enjoyed this Career Learning Experience and learned a lot from the film professionals.

College and Career Center
Mr. Holloway, from the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) in Los Angeles, led three periods of students through the ASVAB Results and Interpretation sessions on Tuesday, November 6. Students received their scores on the skills portion of the ASVAB, which they took on September 28, and then completed the second part of the ASVAB, the online personality inventory. Mr. Holloway helped students research possible future careers which would fit both their skills and personality qualities. Each student completed a worksheet which they could show their counselor for future course selections and guidance.
