Nyla Saines   Clarksville High School

Since I was five-years-old I’ve always loved doing people’s hair and nails,” Nyla Saines said. Through the Clarksville High CTE cosmetology program, she made her dream a reality.

Nyla Saines became the first Tennessee high school student to receive her Cosmetology license through an apprenticeship model, while still a full-time student.

"Nyla has always worked so hard and stayed so determined in her journey of obtaining her cosmetology license. It definitely took hard work, perfected skills, and lots of focus to accomplish what she did,” said Laina Shearon, CHS Cosmetology instructor.

The apprenticeship provides a practical and professional experience as the students work towards completing their 1500 required hours before they are eligible to take the state board practical exam. Students receive official licensure from the State of Tennessee after passing this exam.

On Tue., Oct. 6, all CMCSS seniors, both traditional and CMCSS K-12 Virtual, will take the ACT exam in-person at their enrolled school.

To best meet the needs of seniors taking the ACT and follow health and safety protocols, Oct. 6 will be a remote learning day for traditional students in grades 9-11. With remote learning, students do not report to the school building as they will access learning via the laptops CMCSS provided them. Teachers will provide more information to students on how to access lessons from home.

Last March, the ACT was cancelled for the Class of 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the date is being made up on Oct. 6. The ACT is a graduation requirement in the state of Tennessee, and is important for students to qualify for college entrance requirements, the Hope Scholarship, CMCSS Work Ethic Distinction, benchmarks for Honors and Highest Honors diplomas, numerous scholarships, and determining class rank for seniors in January.

On Oct. 6, all seniors will need to arrive at their enrolled school no later than 7:30 a.m. Traditional seniors who ride CMCSS transportation should be at their bus stop at the regularly scheduled time in the morning. Students will finish the exam by approximately 12:30 p.m. CMCSS K-12 Virtual seniors may leave after the exam. Schools will share more details with their individual school communities prior to Oct. 6.

Today is the first day of fall! 🍂

According to "The Old Farmers Almanac", in 2020, the autumnal equinox—also called the September equinox or fall equinox—arrives on Tuesday, September 22. Fall begins in the Northern Hemisphere and spring begins in the Southern Hemisphere.

What Is the Autumnal Equinox?
The autumnal equinox—also called the September or fall equinox—is the astronomical start of the fall season in the Northern Hemisphere and of the spring season in the Southern Hemisphere.

What Is an Equinox?
The word “equinox” comes from Latin aequus, meaning “equal,” and nox, “night.” On the equinox, day and night are roughly equal in length. During the equinox, the Sun crosses what we call the “celestial equator”—an imaginary extension of Earth’s equator line into space. The equinox occurs precisely when the Sun’s center passes through this line. When the Sun crosses the equator from north to south, this marks the autumnal equinox; when it crosses from south to north, this marks the vernal equinox.

After the autumnal equinox, the Sun begins to rise later and nightfall comes sooner. This ends with the December solstice, when days start to grow longer and nights shorter.

CMCSS has dozens of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs of study for students. One such program helped a student achieve her dream.

“Since I was five-years-old I’ve always loved doing people’s hair and nails,” Nyla Saines said.
Through the Clarksville High CTE cosmetology program, she made her dream a reality.
Nyla Saines became the first Tennessee high school student to receive her Cosmetology license through an apprenticeship model, while still a full-time student. “Nyla has always worked so hard and stayed so determined in her journey of obtaining her cosmetology license. It definitely took hard work, perfected skills, and lots of focus to accomplish what she did,” said Lisa Shearon, CHS Cosmetology instructor.
The apprenticeship provides a practical and professional experience as the students work towards completing their 1500 required hours before they are eligible to take the state board practical exam. Students receive official licensure from the State of Tennessee after passing this exam.
