Snack cart gives special education students opportunities

Special education students at Sturgeon Bay School District continue to learn life skills one snack at a time despite the pandemic. In past years, the students would circle the halls at Sturgeon Bay High School and T.J. Walker Middle School to sell snacks to teachers and staff in need of something to munch on during the day. The daily task taught the students life skills such as handling money, counting, and communication. Like area restaurants, the students had to adapt to offer “curbside” service to their customers with a little help from a Google form. Special education teacher Lindsay Ferry says it is great for the students to still be able to offer the service.

Ferry thanked the district and the community for making special considerations for its students with disabilities such as acquiring clear masks for those who need to read lips to communicate and offering work opportunities outside of its buildings.
