Newberg HS Room H101 503.554.5104

Dear Parents and Students,
Greetings! Thank you for your interest in Newberg School Districts Career and
Technical Education (CTE) camps. Over the next several weeks, your student
will work with other 6
, 7
and 8
grade students from both Mountain View and
Chehalem Valley on an ambitious project. In both small and large groups, well
work together to brainstorm, research and develop a single comprehensive
business proposal. Throughout the course, well cover the fundamentals of
entrepreneurship, visit and consult with a local business and have the opportunity
to pitch our idea to mock investors.
An outline of the camp is included below. Topics covered each week may change
depending on field trip or guest speaker schedules. All sessions will be held from
3:15 PM to 5:15 PM at Newberg High School, in room H101. Classes will
typically be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but please note that well meet
on Monday, October 27
and Tuesday, October 28
for the first week (no
meeting on Thursday October, 30
) due to conference scheduling. We also will
not meet during the week of Thanksgiving. Mr. Byerley will meet students inside
the main entrance of the high school (off of Douglas Ave see map below) on
Monday, October 27
to help with our initial orientation.
Check out the camp website at www.8thPeriodEntrepreneurs.weebly.com. This
site will also be a handy resource to hear more about the camp and to stay up-to-
speed on whats happening week-to-week.
Please refer to additional details below regarding transportation to and from each
middle school.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Mr. Alpert (this bald guy) and Mr. Byerley (the other bald guy)
