LAKE WALES – Roosevelt Academy in Lake Wales is a public school that specializes in teaching middle and high school age ESE students vocational training skills. Twice a year for more than a decade, the students and teachers host annual Christmas and Spring Garden sales.
Students who “work” for the Outdoor Furniture Company sell things like student-made picnic tables. Other students make baked goods and “Roosevelt Farms” teaches agricultural skills.
On Thursday, Dec. 13 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., the Annual Christmas Sale takes place.
Barbeque lunches, a variety of cakes and cookies, vegetables, outdoor furniture, plants and herbs will all be for sale. Proceeds benefit the school.
