Why Education/Training Matters:
Our Creator expects His children everywhere to educate themselves. He issued a commandment: “Seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith” (D & C 88:118).
Measured by this celestial standard, it is apparent that those who impulsively “drop out” and cut short their education not only disregard divine decree but frustrate the realization of their own potential.

Education is an important part of Heavenly Father’s plan to help you become more like Him. He wants you to educate your mind and to develop your skills and talents, your power to act well in your responsibilities and your capacity to appreciate life.
Education will prepare you for greater service in the world and in the church. It will help you better provide for yourself, your family, and those in need.
Education is an investment that brings great reward and will open the doors of opportunity that may otherwise be closed to you. Plan now to obtain an education. Be willing to work diligently and make sacrifices if necessary.

4 Skills & 4 Steps to a Successful Career
Life After High School Powerpoint Presentation
We have been so excited to have volunteers come and help some of our students read at Sharon Elementary. This is valuable to us on so many levels. It is so powerful to have an adult from the community come and interact in a positive way with our students. These adults become role models of successful adults for our students. It is someone they can look up to and trust, much like their classroom teacher, and gives them a standard to work towards in their own life.
Teachers work hard to meet the needs of every student but by having volunteers come help in the school some students are able to get more one on one attention. What a wonderful experience for these students!
Having community adults come help in the school ties our school to the neighborhood and lets people know what is going on in our classrooms. One of our goals is to build strong relationships with our community and having volunteers come in our building is one way we can work to accomplish that goal. We love having volunteers come help in our school!
