News & Notes

Recycling:

The 49ers team collects the recycling around the entire school every Thursday morning. This helps the students with job skills and responsibility. The students sort through and seperate the cardboard, bottles, and paper into different bags. This is something the students really enjoy that gets them up and moving around.

 

Jewelry Sales:

The 49ers team works throughout the year making necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. We have two big Jewelry sales, one around Christmas and the other around Mother's Day. The money that we earn from the sales goes towards payment of fieldtrips and classroom supplies.

 

Cooking:

The students cook for the staff once a month, usually on a Friday. They will make an entree, side, tea and dessert. The student's also deliver the food to the staff around the school. Through this, the student's learn cooking, job, and life skills. They practice appropriate sanitation skills and clean up methods. The money earned from this also goes towards payment of fieldtrips and class supplies.
