The Candle Business

Last week, our candle business took off!  Most of our candles were delivered on Friday, but we do have a few more to deliver. If you have not received yours, do not fret!  We will have it to you this week. 

In addition to kicking off our business, our students sold hot chocolate at break (due to the few COLD days we had)!  We also continued working at our assigned job site.  We will have one more week to work at our assigned site before switching. 

We also kicked off a new fundraiser.  We are hoping to send our juniors and seniors to prom and a nice dinner with a possible limo ride to our destination!  If you would like to donate to the cause, we would love for you to visit our Go Fund Me website:

 We also celebrated our funny guy's birthday...Happy birthday to Trip!  Here he is enjoying his favorite slice.

 Here are a few images of our candle business.  I was a LITTLE overwhelmed with the orders, so I didn't get as many pictures as I had hoped.  There will be many more to follow.
Students have different jobs.  Some students are decorating the glass, others microwave the wax (microwave skills!), other students place the wicks in the holders (we did some homemade wick holders by taping pencils together...), and others choose scents for the candle and pour the wax and scents.
...Needless to say, we have a lot going on!  Stay tuned for more adventures.   In class this week, we will be celebrating Read Across America Week (and my favorite, Dr. Seuss) and what makes you, YOU.  We will also be finishing our study on dressing by going over zipping, buttoning, and tying. I hope everyone has a great start to their week!
