The experiences at the Transition Program are amazing. We learn how to open and close the store. and to be creative in the back end at Reach For The STARS. We students have made mugs, t-shirts, spirit wear, and many other things. It absolutely blows my mind on how cool it is to be in the Transition Program because not only are we doing production, we gain experiences by going out in the community and learn jobs at many different places like Big Reach, Goodness Grows, Marc's, Salem Regional Medical Center, Best Western Plus, and Salem Public Library. It is super cool to know that when we students get a job of any kind, we will have the knowledge on how to act, what to do and what not to do for the job.
Personally, I'm extremely grateful for this program. Because of this, I'm learning the ins and the outs of how to get a job, gain experience on how to do it, and learn daily living skills. I get excited to get up in the morning to come to work. Overall, this program teaches us students daily living skills and work related skills.

We've got spirit, yes we do! We've got spirit how about you? Welcome to our blog where you can access all the information about our store and learn about our Transition program. We students have designed mugs, spirit wear, jewelry, wreaths, bookmarks, and planners.
In the process of Mug Mania, we use a software called Sawgrass to make the mugs. Once we get the picture on transfer paper, we tape it up to the mug. We can make mugs for any schools within Columbiana County. You can even customize your mug if you wanted to, either digital or photograph.
During the process of making t-shirts, we put the design on the item and put it on the heat press. We have made t-shirts and hoodies for different schools like Salem, Crestview, Leetonia, and Lisbon.
Jewelry is made in lots of different ways; it depends on what the person wants. We students have made spirit bracelets, we have sold a few during football games. We even make necklaces for the holidays like Christmas and Valentine's Day.
Bookmarks are made in lots of different ways also. It depends on what the person wants, any string, beads or style would work.
We students have made wreaths; for school spirit and Christmas. If you would like one, you can order one.
We've got spirit, yes we do! We've got spirit how about you? The blog will be written by Paetyn Howell and pictures will be taken by Brandon Clark. We will be uploading the blog once a month.
We are members of the CCESC Transition Program, learning to improve our work, daily living, and social skills through our store, gallery, and community invovement.
