In The Know with Tina Pelto - Monthly Principal's Update

October Principal’s Update

We are off to a great start for the 2022-23 school year, and your children are AMAZING! We have loved getting to know them and watching them in their new lab environments.

LCJVS Career Fair

On Thursday, October 12, LCJVS is hosting our annual Fall Career Fair. We will welcome over 80 employers representing every career pathway. To make room for our guests and allow all our 11th and 12th graders to attend, we are running a revised schedule on that day.

Students in the Connections Academy (9th and 10th graders) will have remote learning that day and should not report in person to LCJVS. Their instruction will be asynchronous. Please check Canvas for assignments!

I know this is a disruption to our usual schedule. We strongly believe in the power of these events, and the ways they can help our students. Our Career Fairs help bridge the connection between what we teach in career tech and real-world employment. We want to provide as many opportunities as possible for employers and students to connect, network, and find employment.

Parent Conferences

Parent Conferences will be held in person on October 12th from 4:00-7:00 pm. Parents will make an appointment to talk with the career-tech instructors in the labs. Academic teachers will also be present throughout the evening and will be available with no appointment necessary. An email went out to families with directions on how to schedule a slot with the lab teacher. This process for lab instructor appointments closes at the end of the day on Tuesday, October 10th, so please schedule as soon as possible. If you are having difficulty scheduling, please phone Lucy Hardin at 440-774-1051, ext. 22230 or email at [email protected]..

Our school counselors in partnership with College Now will host a Financial Aid information session at 5:30 that evening in Lecture Room B. The session will be most applicable to 12th grade families, but anyone is welcome to attend.

Our teachers and administrators are always available to speak with parents via phone or through Microsoft Teams (similar to Zoom). If you are unavailable on October 13th, feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher to schedule another time that works for everyone.

As always, if you have an issue that needs immediate attention, please do not hesitate to call. We can set up a face-to-face or virtual meeting to address your concerns.

LCJVS Homecoming Event

On October 21, LCJVS will host a Homecoming Event. We welcome all our current LCJVS families, as well as LCJVS alumni and their families to join us from 11 am to 2 pm for a fun day filled with fall events. We will have inflatables, a petting zoo, face painting, and trick or treating for the little ones. We look forward to seeing you at this fun-filled family event! Register here.


Students are not allowed to wear costumes for Halloween at LCJVS. The only masks students should be wearing are medical masks – Algebra is the scariest part of the season here at school!

Fall Sports

We have many athletes here at LCJVS! We want to wish all student athletes luck as we get into the toughest part of the season!

Open House

Our annual Open House event is Sunday, November 19 from 12 pm-3 pm. Our current families are our greatest ambassadors! If you know of any students or parents that are interested in Lorain County JVS, please encourage them to sign up and check us out! Register Here
