The HWRHS Life Skills students will be opening the Generals’ Store on Monday, February 1st. Teacher Karie Williams and her students have spent much of the first half of the year researching and investigating ideas for the store while at the same time, surveying the student body to form a better understanding of things they would likely purchase.
Donations from the community were a big reason we were able to open so quickly. After reaching out to the parents, the students received garment racks, shelves and even a cash register!
The Generals’ Store has been designed to help our students to learn about the management and handling of inventory, planning, advertising, entrepreneurship and money management. The store will have snacks, Generals gear, homemade holiday cards and basic school supplies. It will be open before school, after school, during power block, and during special events.
Thanks to the generosity of the HWRHS Friends Group and many of our families, the store is finally ready for launch. We are grateful for such strong community support! Stop by and check out our latest venture!
