Col. Fred Cherry Students Visit CCAP on Passport DayDid you know that Colonel Fred Cherry Middle School (CFCMS) eighth graders celebrated their inaugural Passport Day at CCAP? It was a two day event, but who’s counting? Mrs. Joan Bowden, Career Technical Education teacher at CFCMS envisioned a great way for students to explore The College and Career Academy at Pruden’s (CCAP) programs, based on their student’s related personal interests and inventory results. This formed into what is now known as Passport Day. In addition, she had a desire to increase middle school staff, student and parent awareness of Suffolk Public School’s CCAP Career and Technical Education Programming.

Prior to their visit to CCAP, CFMS students selected six (6) of CCAP programs based on their inventory results that matched with four (4) programs. On Passport Day, students traveled around CCAP related programs with a passport that had to be stamped prior to entry into the CCAP classes. They attended sessions in 15 minute intervals, racing through the halls trying to get to their next destination. CCAP staff could see the joy in all of the students, as they participated in planned activities such as recipe preparation (flavored popcorn), blood pressure screening, engine manipulation, and simulator operation (Utility Heavy Construction). Students received a "passport stamp" following each session.

What an awesome way to spend the day at CCAP!
