Students participating in Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) programs had an opportunity to demonstrate their entrepreneurial skills on March 31 during Student Success Day at the David P. Meaney Education Center.
The SCOE parking lot was transformed into an outdoor mini-mall for the day. Career-Technical Education students in SCOE's landscaping program sold plants and seedlings. Students from Leo A. Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School served a special lunch from the school's hot dog cart. Students participating in the Career Exploration course at Morgan School, which serves foster youth, sold dog treats and pet toys and accessories that students made by hand.
The special event served as a fundraiser for SCOE's Juvenile Court, Community School and Special Education programs, with all proceeds going directly into those programs. Administrators, teachers and staff helped SCOE students prepare for this entrepreneurship opportunity.
