Ornaments designed by IPS Career Center students.  As you search for gifts for your friends and family this holiday season, the students of Indianapolis Public Schools’ Career Technology Center have some delightful options to complete your shopping list!

Students from Mr. Wiley’s Welding class and Mr. Lauderbaugh’s Auto Collision Repair class teamed up to create a trio of ornaments to trim your tree. You can purchase a tree, angel or dove ornament for $3 each. All proceeds support the welding fund used to purchase class materials throughout the school year.

Each ornament is handcrafted by welding students and painted by auto repair students. You can start a holiday tradition with these ornaments – the classes create a new set every year!

Supplies are limited, so you’re encouraged to place your order as soon as possible. Orders will be taken until December 16 to ensure pickup by December 18. To place an order please email Mr. Wiley at wileyj@myips.org or contact CTC Administrative Assistant Peggy Grable at 317.693.5430.

If you’re looking to help a loved one relax this holiday, the Cosmetology students are ready to help! Rejuvenating beauty baskets have been designed by our students – these packages are filled with treats to keep the stress of the season away.

Each basket costs $10 and includes the following:

  • Pedi Soak
  • Hand-made Body Butter (Shea based)
  • Hand-made Body Scrub (Jojoba based)
  • OPI Polish (colors vary)
  • Pedi Slippers
  • Nail File
  • Body Sponge
  • Toe Separator
  • Holiday Treat (varies)

All funds raised from these baskets will be used to replenish supplies in Studio 212, the program’s working salon on Arsenal Tech’s campus. Orders will be taken until December 12 to ensure pickup by December 18. To place Cosmetology basket orders please call Peggy Grable at 317.693.5430.

We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to spread holiday cheer while supporting the talented students in our Career Technology Center!
