On May 1, the parking lot at the David P. Meaney Education center was transformed into an outdoor shopping center as students participating in Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) programs demonstrated their entrepreneurial skills during the 5th annual Student Success Day.
The event served as a fundraiser for SCOE's Community School, ROP/Career-Technical Education, and Special Education programs, with all proceeds going directly into those programs.
Career-Technical Education students in SCOE's Sustainable Environments Learning Academy sold student-grown plants. Students participating in the Small Business Occupations, Management and Entrepreneurship program sold homemade dog treats, pet toys and pet blankets that students made by hand. Delightful bowls, vases, and other wooden items were sold by students from the Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School Woodturning Club. A bake sale helped raise money for the Culinary Arts Program, and the Palmiter Art Club offered handmade note cards for sale.
Visitors also enjoyed art displays from SCOE classrooms throughout the county. Many thanks to the Special Education, Community Schools, and ROP/CTE teachers, para-educators, administrators, and staff who worked with students to make Student Success Day possible.
