The Roaring Lion Empire, a new school store and program for students, opened for business for the first time on Sept. 7. Transition resource teacher Joyce Davis and ESE teachers Beth Ann Yusk and Jen Quattry started the new program, which offers merchandise such as balloons for birthdays and other special events.

“The store gives our special needs students an opportunity to learn and practice valuable career skills that can foster further independence after high school,” Quattry said. “All profits go back into the business to hopefully help create more job opportunities for our students.”

Students can shop at the Roaring Lion Empire during both lunches, at the clock tower during break and the library before school.
