CEO Salutes February & March Students of the Month

Congratulations Alfred DeSantiago – February, 2017 CEO Student of the Month

Alfred DeSantiago has put in tremendous effort into his language arts class. He has perfect attendance, has turned in every piece of homework early, and makes strong contributions in class. He always has a positive attitude and helps out his other classmates when they are struggling with a concept in class.

At first, DeSantiago did not like the writing aspect of class, but (with a little coaxing) now writes some of the most creative and interesting essays in class. For these reasons, we are proud to announce him as our March “Student of the Month”!

Congratulations Arthur Jones – March, 2017 CEO Student of the Month

This is Arthur’s second time to be in my language arts class and he has shown tremendous character and perseverance throughout the entire process. Even though he barley missed passing his post-test the first time, he overcame his obstacles and buckled down in his studies. He has had perfect attendance and homework BOTH sessions, which is a big feat.

He has endured a traumatic accident which has left him with difficulties writing, but not only has he continued to push himself, he has been writing poetry. I have enjoyed reading his writings in class and to see how poetic he is at heart. His additions to the discussions in class are courteous and insightful.  He is truly a joy to have in class and I want to congratulate him!

CEO Greeley Celebrates Graduation

Big Day for Community Educational Outreach Students

Greeley, was happy to host a graduation on March 26, 2016 in honor of three students who completed their High School Equivalency.

These exceptional students were the first to complete TASC (Tests of Secondary Completion) for Greeley, which was rolled out in November 2016. TASC is comprised of five tests which assess knowledge in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Each student studies for on average four to five months dedicating about four to six hours a week.

Alvin Arguello, Robert Yeager, and Sara Miller invited their families to the celebration, and Safeway (West 10th Street, Greeley) donated a beautiful graduation cake. The Instructors and Director look forward to many more graduation parties in the near future.

CEO Success Story – Greeley

Reasons to why CEO class has helped and improved my life: Yvonne’s Story

ceo-facility-greeley

“First, I absolutely love and enjoy looking forward to working with staff who made it very comfortable for me since I’ve been here. When I first arrived here at ICCS Greeley, I was not ready to be social with anyone and CEO class and staff helped me open up and gain encouragement to want to improve in my life and my career.

Within one week and on my first interview, I got the job I desired thanks to Lexi and Erica at that time. I respect staff and appreciate their time and energy they spend trying to improve us as clients to be productive in the community.

I honestly can say I am very happy and grateful to have such wonderful, happy, positive staff to help improve me to be a better person.”
