Sherrie L. Barker’s Varying Exceptionalities students traditionally have held a craft/bake sale in December to raise money for spring field trips.  The Sugar Plum Shoppe, a craft/bake sale, runs for one week and is open to both students and faculty, as well as to members of the community.  Invitations are sent out and the event is advertised in the local paper.  Each year, the class spends between $1000 -$1500 to buy materials for the craft sale.  For the shop, students create cookies-in-a-jar mixes and soup-in-a-jar mixes, as well as baked goods, such as cookies and candies, to sell.  They also create tree ornaments, quilts, stuffed reindeer dolls, snowman wreaths, birdfeeders, candleholders, garden angels and wind chimes. The class’s most recent profit, to go toward spring field trips, was $1500.  This allowed them to take four field trips, all paid for with their own earnings.  Funds that are left in the class account from the shop are used as “start-up” money for the next year’s sale.  Additionally, the class gives to charities which are chosen and voted on by the class and to buy items for the classroom (ex: sewing scissors, mixing bowl).

The Legacy Café, David Miller Center for Successful Transition was dedicated in 2012 in recognition of longtime Superintendent Miller’s commitment to success for all students. It is housed in the cafeteria of the former Crawfordville Elementary School, currently the Wakulla County School District Office and serves as a training ground for students with disabilities to develop skills in culinary arts, hygiene,  social communication, maintenance and the business of running a restaurant through hands on participation. Students plan the menu, shop for the food and supplies, prepare and serve the food, collect money, and perform the maintenance duties (laundry, dish-washing and cleaning).  Participating students come from the Wakulla High School Exceptional Student Education Program and the Program for Adults with Disabilities. Beginning in 2013, the students have expanded the business to include a boutique offering the sale of handcrafted items.
