Not only did these eight students diligently work all fall to make the Corner Store a success, they donated all the store’s profits. After paying all the store’s start-up fees, the class made a $500 donation to IMPACT service partners and bought the beautiful sign for the Corner Store, located in the Den.
The class, taught by Mrs. Sarah Wynn, saw an extremely successful semester with the school store. In fact, their success has spilled over into spring semester even though it no longer meets. Student volunteers man the store during the last 15 minutes of each secondary lunch period.
“I enjoyed the privilege of teaching eight wonderful students in the fall entrepreneur class, and together we dreamed big things for our Corner Store. What began on a tiny cart grew into a very profitable and educational business that is now housed in an actual school store space. We far exceeded our goals and feel blessed to be able to have purchased our own school store sign as well as give financially to our IMPACT teams,” said Mrs. Wynn.
We are thankful to Mrs. Wynn and her students. When you next see these students, make sure you give them a big thumbs up.
