Crafts by Compass: Handmade Greetings for Bright Futures

Crafts by Compass: Handmade Greetings for Bright Futures

The Compass program at Richfield High School supports students in grades 9-12 who have developmental disabilities. Among other initiatives, like the Coffee Cart at RHS, students in the Compass Work-Based Learning Program create and sell greeting cards in the school store. New this year, students also created gift tags! These products were all handcrafted by students and feature plenty of subjects, with cards ranging from “Congratulations” and “Thank You” to a special “Cats in Space” design! Selling these products provides students with invaluable real-life experience with charging payments, invoicing, supply and demand and more. 

Recently, the Compass team has made these greeting cards and gift tags available to community members as well as RPS staff and students! They offer store pickup (at the RHS school store), shipping directly to your address, or intra-district mail for RPS employees.

Beyond being a thoughtful gift, purchasing these handmade items supports work-based learning opportunities for students. When you choose our cards or gift tags, you're not just sending warm wishes; you're helping students build employment skills that will last a lifetime. 

If you would like information on the current inventory or have other questions, contact the work-based learning team at 612-798-6262 or email workbasedlearning@rpsmn.org
