D88 Transition students create holiday decor; Effort one of program’s business initiatives

Students in the District 88 Transition program recently continued their classroom business with handmade holiday décor.

Guided by Transition program staff members Stephanie Nitka and Amanda Wilson, the students created ceramic coasters with seasonal designs, as well as wooden trees about 34 inches tall. The items were available for District 88 staff members to purchase.

The pupils collected orders, filled out and organized order forms, created and distributed invoices, collected payment and delivered the items. Proceeds went toward a special trip for the students to see “The SpongeBob Musical” at Drury Lane Oakbrook.

The District 88 Transition Program helps individuals ages 18 to 22, who have a variety of abilities learn life skills, obtain job training at local vocational sites in a community setting and transition to a life of independence after District 88. Read more at dupage88.net/TransitionProgram.
