Students in the Graphic Arts program at the Clare-Gladwin Career Center recently created 25 books for students in Mrs. Todd’s first grade class at the Renaissance Public School Academy in Mount Pleasant.
“Every semester, the Graphic Arts class completes a service learning project,” said Graphic Arts instructor Andrea Boettner. “The students learn the skills related to the curriculum and find a way to help the community out. We made the books as an introduction to the binary unit and found a class with the need for them.” According to Boettner, the first grade students are currently using the books as science journals.
Graphic Arts student Julie Lester said, “It was nice to make a project that gave us real life experience and helped our community.”
Graphic Arts is one of nine CTE programs offered to local high school juniors and seniors at the Clare-Gladwin Career Center, a program of the Clare-Gladwin RESD. Students spend half of their regular school day in CTE and the other half at their local high school. For more information, please visit
