At most schools it is customary for the secretary or an administrator to make phone calls on behalf of the school, but at Innovation Tech we want our students to take action, learn life skills and responsibility. We value real world experience over theory, so we decided that it would be best if our students made the phone calls inviting other school districts to a breakfast to get the word out about our program and our new building.
We had our students come up with everything we needed to get across in the phone calls and wrote a script to use as a crutch during the phone calls and selected a student to call our principal Mrs. Belanger to serve as an example of how to go about professionally inviting someone to an event, after that we assigned all students a district to call and sent them on their way!
Overall it went really well and we got a lot of attendance confirmations. We are really excited for the upcoming breakfast!
If you would like to attend the Building a Better Future Breakfast, it will be held on October 24th from 8:30-9:30am.
