Special Education Autism Program’s Cookie Business

Erin Bode, News Managing Editor

Beginning this year, the Special Education Autism program is making cookies and delivering them to classes and teachers through a program started by MCPS.
The cookie business will continue throughout the school year and possibly into next year, depending on its success. Cookies are baked and delivered every Thursday with the hope of expanding to other days.
“I reached the goal of getting the grant funds needed to start the business and our first two weeks were successful with sales,” special education teacher Caitlin Wise said.
The grant funds were essential to starting the business and were approved by the transaction department in order to fund the business.
