Customer Service Through Real-World Application

Students will be able to learn skills that will enable them to get a job as they transition to post-secondary. My students will learn floral design and have these for sell to the community. We are also working the FFA students to develop a business. Students will sell popcorn and other items during events and use those funds to help with buying flowers and supplies for the floral business.

Solving for Tomorrow

Today’s students are required to learn more information than ever before. However, students often compartmentalize this information and are unable to apply it outside the very narrow parameters of the relevant classroom. However, if they are given the opportunity to apply this learning in a real-world context, they are able to transcend the classroom and break cognitive barriers. To achieve this goal, students will be offered a Solve for Tomorrow class in which they are able to apply their STEM skills in the development and creation of an authentic solution. Once they have completed their solution, students will demonstrate their understanding through a presentation to their peers and community at the district Makerfaire. In addition to the Makerfaire presentation, students will also complete surveys and formative assessments to measure and monitor their growth throughout the year.

Advanced Skills for Community Employment for Students with Moderate and Severe Disabilities

We will set up a school store (slushie, popcorn, and cappuccino) using a retail point of sale cash register with scanner. Additional items will be purchased in order for the students to have opportunities to develop real life sales and cash register skills. The students will be involved in all aspects of the store including marketing, budgeting, financing, preparation, cleaning and sales. They will rotate through all tasks involved to develop a variety of workplace skills.

Green With Innovation Part 2

We are a very small k-12 school in one building. We are very limited with funds, and with that we as teachers must constantly think outside of the box for ways to fund our classroom. We may be a small school, however our class sizes are fairly large. When there is a larger amount of students in your classroom it makes it difficult to find resources and usually results in more out of pocket expense than normal. Last year we were blessed with the beginnings of this grant for our Agriculture Class. It was a HUGE reason that our class flourished and our kids were able to experience things I otherwise would not have been able to give them. This year, I want to expand on what we started last year. I would like to transform our outdoor classroom into an outdoor garden due to our very limited means of space on the hill. With this I will need a tiller to work the ground, and a high tunnel to protect the plants, as well as other tools needed to take care of our crops. This would be a tremendous help to us and furthering our Agriculture program at JCS.
