We have been very busy this summer in our attempt to provide services to 96 kiddos! Our Summer School program is offering in-person and remote options to students in grades 7-12 across ROE 17. Not only are academic services being offered, but we are also providing free meals and counseling services through June 16th! It is always a great day to be at RAS!

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 We had another fun day of cooking! The students prepped and cooked Mexican street tacos (steak), peppers, Cajun chicken alfredo, and apple crisp! Over the course of the unit, students learned about shopping & budgeting, portions & measurements, how to read a recipe, and preparing a meal. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
We love ending the year strong! Miss Carter had a group of students experimenting with the VR. Mr Eddins has been taking kids down to the workshop to create items out of wood.
