If off-campus students attended the PPCC Concurrent Enrollment Orientation last year, there is no need to attend the PPCC Concurrent Enrollment Orientation this year. There are a variety of dates and times to choose from.

    Exciting Updates

    I am very excited to introduce our new team members for the 2019-2020 school year:

    • Deme Humphries, Math Instructor
    • Bob King, AVID Instructor
    • Lisa Fowler, School Counselor
    • Patricia Jaynes, Special Education Instructor
    • Kelsey Johnson, SPED Funded Mental Health Counselor

    Odyssey ECCO instructors have been working this summer to enrich their professional experience, so in return, they can offer our students the highest level of opportunity.  Please find below just a few of the growth opportunities instructors have been able to take advantage of this summer.

    • Extensive graduate level work in order to offer additional college courses
    • The Colorado Association of Career and Technical Education CareerTech Summit
    • Culturally Relevant Teaching Avid training
    • Talent Development Secondary Starting event mapping

    Finally, parents, I encourage you to be partners with us in supporting your student(s).  Your involvement as a parent is critical.  Supporting your student’s success is not only assisting your child in achieving a college degree while still in high school, but also supporting the overall growth of our school.

    Please consider taking on a role on the School Accountability Committee and having a voice in the decisions that are made at Odyssey ECCO. Meetings are held the first (non-vacation) Monday of every month at 4:00 p.m., in room 195. Our first School Accountability Meeting will be held on Monday, September 9th.  We are eager to help, so if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you for being part of the Odyssey Early College and Career Options family and let’s make this a fantastic year!

     

    Onward and Upward,

    Sean Norman
