Featured Shorians: MiCI Students
This is the image for the news article titled Featured Shorians: MiCI StudentsIn Mrs. Fain's MiCI class at Lake Shore High School, students have the opportunity to participate in Career Based Instruction (CBI).

Students are placed at ACE Hardware, the Saint Clair Shores Library, EOS Cafe, and American House for the purpose of providing work experience and career exploration and given work of instructional value.

Every Friday Mary-Faith and Veronica work at ACE Hardware and check the store for stock, complete seasonal jobs such as watering flowers, grass blowing, and organizing the store. They also wipe off tables, mop floors, and sweep.

Victoria enjoys making sure all stock is forward-facing and organized. With the assistance of Paraprofessional Mrs. Sue, everything looks great. "Mrs. Sue is so nice and helpful," Victoria complimented.

Lead teacher Mrs. Fain is proud of this program. She said, "It helps develop strong positive relationships with employers and facilitates ongoing employment opportunities."

In Mrs. Bushaw's MiCI class at Kennedy Middle School, students created gumball machines, facilitated by Mrs. Dmochowski on her prep hour. This Adaptive Art lesson had Clippers working with surface area as they filled their containers with colorful balls.

There are both inside and outside of the classroom activities that provide excellent opportunities for our students.

Bonus: The MISD is once again looking for nominations for the annual Make A Difference Award sponsored by the MISD Parent Advisory Committee. Please use this form if you would like to nominate a teacher, paraprofessional, social worker, speech pathologist or psychologist who is involved in your child's education.

Beat the deadline of Friday, February 10th by using our Snow Day to nominate a Shorian.
