The Third Grade hosted their Annual Entrepreneur Fair on Thursday, June 1st, during the night of the Community Open House. This sale is part of their economics unit in an effort to earn money to save the wetlands.
Early in the Spring, students initiated their projects: conducted research, taking market surveys and interviewing other entrepreneurs, started to learn important concepts and finalized their business ideas. Once they had their business ventures approved, they soon began manufacturing or preparing the parts of their service, purchasing business licenses, choosing rental spaces, creating advertisements, and making business cards and thank you receipts. Students even got a loan from Sea Crest for petty cash in preparation for the Open House.
Third graders donated all the money raised from the Entrepreneur Fair to the Coastside Land Trust in an effort to help save the wetlands –We are so proud of them!
