Field Trip to Jungle Jim's was Amazing

Our students had the opportunity to visit Jungle Jim's and saw a side of this business that few ever know about! Jungle Jim's staff created a detailed curriculum that exposed our students to what you need to know in order to work at this international grocery. Students were impressed to learn how important math, geography, languages, and other subjects are required to work at Jungle Jim's. They were also able to see many sights that a regular customer would not be able to see as well as tasted samples of many products in the store. It was definitely a trip everyone will remember!

The student told his intention to one of our staff members, who acted quickly and notified the Administrators and SRO. The student was quickly removed from the classroom.
