Here is important information for SSAE high school students and parents.
Big picture

Market Day was a Success!

From April 23 and ending on May 16, the students worked hard on the Project Based Learning Project entitled Market Day which focused on math, language arts, and economic concepts/standards involved in creating and marketing a profitable small business and using that business to help support the community.

On May 14, 2019, the Market Day was open to the public in the SSAE building from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM, where students sold homemade projects, food, and games. Many families, parents, students, administrators, and D49 staff and teachers stopped by to support these high school entrepreneurs.

In total, the students made over $2800, which is a $1300 profit, which is in the process of being donated to over 23 different charities.

Congratulations to SSAE's 2019 Graduates

Graduation was a complete success with a large crowd and many smiles.
