Mr. Fix’s Independent Living Class went on its first field trip of the year. They visited the Dollar Tree and Wal-Mart in order to purchase cooking utensils and other items needed for cooking. They created a budget, made a shopping list and used the profits that they gained from Today Café to purchase the items. By comparing different items and selecting sale items, the students actually came in $40 under budget. The trip was very successful. The students are excited to learn how to cook and use their new kitchen equipment.
