Life Skills Class at a Glance

By: Abigail Laude/Senior Feature Editor

Have you seen Gavin Haur delivering coffee to the high school teachers each morning? The coffee is delivered from Monday to Friday along with a baked treat on Fridays. By doing this, they earn money to pay for field trips and supplies for their classroom.

Adele Bennett is the Life Skills teacher along with many other aids in the classroom. Mrs. Bennett stated that her favorite part of this job is the different personalities she encounters and the engagement she sees between the students.

Mrs. Cook is an aid in the Life Skills classroom. It was a blessing in disguise that she gets to work with kids she loves. Although she was previously in a secretary position until the position was no longer available. She was placed into this classroom where she grew to love her job. She quotes, “Love the job, love the kids.”

One of the encounters students volunteers have a privilege being apart of is Life Skills Prom. To those who don’t know, Life Skills Prom is when classes from our district get together and have their own unique prom. Last years theme was circus themed. There was pop corn, cotton candy, statue elephants, and a photo booth. This is really impacting seeing the kids dance on the dance floor and observing their personalities shining bright was a site to see.

Next time you see them in the hall, make sure to say hi and ask how their day was. This could make their day better.
