The team also competed in the Skills Division where they were the top scoring team (raising them to no. 1 in skills for the State Middle School Division). Michael and Jeffrey brought home the Tournament Champions, Robot Skills Champions, and Team Excellence trophies. Way to go team CMS Eagles!! 7th grade robotics team had another very successful competition this Saturday in Jonesboro.

Currently, Crossett High School has implemented the OWL program for the 2018-2019 school year. The OWL program is a program that is funded by Arkansas Rehabilitation Services(ARS). Cynthia Bullard, a representative from ARS, visits Crossett High School twice every month to help with post secondary schools/ training options. The first semester Crossett started out with 10 students in the program. Mrs. Culpepper’s students performed jobs in the media center, cafeteria and custodial work in the building. Mrs. O‘Neal’s students participated by cleaning in various classrooms throughout the building. Her students also participated in a recycling program. Both teachers have witnessed positive effects from the program with participating students. These students are loyal, punctual, and enjoy learning their jobs to perform all duties expected of them. Additionally, the OWL program has been a step in the right direction to promote independence of Special Education students for post secondary options after high school. Since, the students have received their first paycheck several have opened up bank accounts with the support of local banks. This will help them build more skills for balancing checkbooks, want versus need purchases, how to file taxes, and many more skills that are needed after high school. For those students that want to further their educations the OWL program will guide these very students into post high school programs. Crossett High School Special Education students established an entrepreneurship business with the help of art students. This business allows students to serve coffee/ hot chocolate from mobile carts (Hospitality Cart & Crossett Cafe Cart) around the school. These students are building confidence while learning to take turns, making eye contact with people, how to communicate with people, and how to count money. They are really enjoying selling coffee to the teachers and administrators in the building. Six of the students pushing carts around the school are calling themselves the “Green Men”, and it has stuck. You’ll see the carts on Wednesdays and the students really appreciate the staff that have supported this group. The OWL program has been a positive move for Crossett High School. The students have really improved their skills since the first day of starting the OWL program. Soon the students will participate in off campus opportunities. Several local businesses have shown interest in our students, because the OWL program actually funds work / training hours up to 20 hours per week. Our students have interests in working in the local fire department, Georgia Pacific, bowling alley and Daylight Donuts shop who has also decided to donate pastries to the carts this semester. Finally, the OWL program is on its early legs here at Crossett High School and is really turning out to be a positive impact on the students and local community. view image
