Today, some of our learners had the opportunity to visit the Local 49ers Training Center in Cloverdale, MN, where they were able to learn about, climb on, explore, and test drive heavy equipment machines. This is a career interest area for many of our learners, so it was a great chance to get to see the machines up close and personal.
Today, some of our MAAP STARS members had the opportunity to attend WE Day at the Excel Energy Center in St. Paul, where we spent the day listening to some inspiring stories of kids making a difference in the world, as well as watching (and dancing/singing to) some amazing performers. We were inspired into expanding our community service outreach. We hope to make this an annual trip!
This evening two standout MAAP STARS members, Janeecka Fisher and Savannah Roseland, stepped up to help serve their community by serving a meal for the annual Finlayson-Giese Lion's Club Deer Hunter's Dinner. Great job, ladies! We are proud of your after-school community service efforts!
(And thank you as always to the F-G Lions Club for continuing to support the ELC and MAAP STARS!)
Today, 4 MAAP STARS students and Advisor Val Kunze embarked on the journey to Long Prairie for the 2017 MAAP STARS Fall Leadership Conference, where the learners were able to congregate with with students from 28 other Alternative Learning High Schools from across the state of MN at Lake Beauty Camp. The conference was a two-day event (yes, we slept overnight at camp!) and activities centered around developing leadership and social skills, as well as planning ahead for our year as a MAAP STARS Chapter.
