Heath Extended Day 4/7 Newsletter
What’s been happening in 4/7?
The month of November was dedicated to the PROJECT BREAD HOLIDAY SPOONS PROJECT! The students did an outstanding job designing such artistic, creative, and unique spoons. The outpouring of compliments from parents, teachers, and peers was amazing! The students dedication and commitment was evident when “customers” asked questions about the project when purchasing spoons from the spoon store. Additionally, they did a fantastic job selling the spoons and working with the money given. They kept track of the money by counting it and having a tally sheet and crossed referenced at the end of each work shift. Students were given twenty minute time slots to work at the spoon store and learned the importance of being punctual to their job. We are so happy to announce that we raised over $200.00 and our donation was matched by Jordan’s Furniture! Thank you so much to all of the HEDP families and Heath faculty for your purchases and generous donations! We are so proud of the effort, commitment, and interest the students had in this project! A round of applause to all of them!
What to look forward to in December
The second week of December will be dedicated to COOKING. Students have signed up for one cooking activity of their choice that they will get to make (and enjoy)! Cooking ideas were gathered from student goals of learning how to make specific recipes. Recipes include: homemade strawberry cake, lasagna, homemade ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, and homemade marble cake.
The third and fourth week of december will be dedicated to DIY gift making. Projects will include, sewing a bag to hold homemade peppermint bark, mason jar snowmen and reindeer, fleece scarf making, and a riced filled snowman sock craft. Students will sign up for an activity (or all four) during the two week period. Each activity will be offered twice so they will choose a time that works best for them!
