LES Entrepreneur Fair
Posted Monday, June 2, 2014
Four classrooms joined forces for one big lesson that resulted in one giant check donation. At Loveland Elementary School (LES) students spent Friday, May 16, setting up small shops to sell items they created for an Entrepreneur Fair.
“This was a culmination of each third-grade classroom’s work in economics; students learned firsthand about producers and consumers, product production and cost, as well as advertising,” explained LaVerne Armstrong, LES teacher.
“We made the joint decision to take the money raised and donate it to CancerFree KIDS in honor of Becca Kniskern, the daughter of LES employee Trisha Kniskern, who has battled leukemia since she was a little girl,” said Cindy Rack, LES teacher . “Students presented Mrs. Kniskern a giant check listing the total amount at the conclusion of the fair. We were all smiles that our lesson provided us this opportunity to help a member of the Tiger Family.”
The LES Entrepreneur Fair brought in a total of $1,879.72 for the nonprofit organization. CancerFree KIDS provides money to fund pediatric cancer research.
