HDS Foundation had a chance to meet the students who were chosen to participate in the HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. class this year. We are so excited to begin our program at Hialeah Miami Lakes Senior High School and look forward to the significant progress the students will make! Go Trojans!
As part of our HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. Program Community Based Instruction (CBI), students learn budgeting skills while they shop for goods and services. Part of the grant money our Foundation awards to the schools each year goes to purchasing gift cards. This week, our CBI was a shopping experience at Publix, the teacher pre-purchased (14) $15 Publix gift cards. Prior to heading out on their CBI field trip, students looked over the type of subs, deli-style food, desserts, and drinks they could order for lunch. Each student made a list of what they wanted, and their assigned teammate had to order it for them. This was a fantastic lesson in budgeting and problem-solving, as some items were not available and students had to decide what to do; some of the students had to calculate whether the combo deal was a savings or not, order from the deli and bakery and of course find all the items that were listed on their friend’s lunch order. Each student managed to stay within their budget of $15. We are very proud of our HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students as they continue to learn life skills!
Our HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students took on the Office Depot Challenge with their teams to purchase supplies within their specified budget. Each team had to work together, communicate, and decide which items would be the best choice to keep their project within budget. Each group did a fantastic job and stayed within their budget. This Community Based Instruction field trip helped the students learn life skills while shopping for supplies with their team members.
We are excited to meet the new students in our HDS B.R.I.D.G.E.S. Program for the 2022-2023 school year! We are looking forward to a great year!
On this Patriot Day we remember the first responders and those who made difficult decisions to save lives. Flags are flown at half-mast on this day to honor our fallen brothers and sisters. A moment of silence is traditionally observed at 8:46 AM.
