Selling Crafts for the Holidays

Selling Crafts for the Holidays 2018

Students enrolled in Connetquot High School’s Life Skills course recently displayed their incredible artistic skills during the second annual holiday craft fair.

With assistance from Life Skills teacher Danielle Orobello, the students spent weeks putting together colorful holiday signs, tree ornaments and door decorations which they offered for sale at school on Dec. 14. The doors opened at 8 a.m. and crowds of eager teacher-shoppers took the opportunity to pick up holiday decorations for their own homes, as well as for friends and family members.

“The students learned important skills about creating and running a business during this event,” said Ms. Orobello. “Our program teaches the students the abilities they need to be successful in the work force, as they get hands-on experience in the community working with local businesses. We are so proud of their hard work.”
