RAHWAY — On a recent Friday, Rahway High School student members of Children Learning About Work (CLAW), directed by Patricia Williams, took a field trip by Hummer limousine to New York City to visit landmarks that included the Wax Museum. This trip was self-funded by the profits of CLAW’s holiday gift sale conducted this past December, so it incurred no cost for the Board of Education. CLAW members are grateful to faculty and staff members for their support in purchasing gifts.
The purpose of CLAW is to give students hands-on learning in advertising, assembly, computation of profit margins, and operation of a cash register. The payoff for all their hard work comes in the form of an annual field trip, which has usually been by taken by public transit. Therefore, the limousine ride was a major upgrade and a source of great excitement for the students.
