SLE Outfitters is a new T-shirt business started by Seeley Lake Elementary eighth grade students. They created the logo with the help of local graphic designer Brandy Wyckoff and are currently taking orders.

SEELEY LAKE – Three eighth-grade students in the Jobs for Montana Graduates (JMG) Middle School Program gave a presentation to the Seeley Lake Elementary (SLE) School Board Feb. 20 detailing the student-initiated T-shirt business. The JMG program is incorporated into Michele Holmes' eighth-grade technology class, which focuses on integrating tech skills with job, life and career skills.

In her role as JMG Career Specialist, Holmes gave a brief overview, explaining JMG requires all participating schools to engage in Project Based Learning and provides a small stipend for that purpose.
