Students participating in Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) programs had an opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial skills on May 7 during Student Success Day at the David P. Meaney Education Center.
The event served as a fundraiser for SCOE's Juvenile Court, Community School, and Special Education programs, with all proceeds going directly into those programs.
The SCOE parking lot was transformed into an outdoor mini-mall for the day. Career-Technical Education students in SCOE's landscaping program sold student-grown seedlings and vegetable starts for spring gardeners. SCOE staff also had the opportunity to enjoy a hot dog lunch from the Leo's Links cart (operated by Leo A. Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School students).
Inside the Meaney Center, students from Gerber Jr./Sr. High School sold and took orders for custom t-shirts. In addition, student art from Morgan Jr./Sr. High School and numerous other SCOE school sites was on display in the Board Room.
Many thanks to the Special Education, Juvenile Court, Community Schools, and Career-Technical Education/ROP teachers, para-educators, administrators, and staff who worked with students to make Student Success Day possible.
