Schools work together
to benefit the
Playground and the American Cancer Society
Itís a win-win situation
when middle schoolers and elementary students can team up to benefit their
larger community. And thatís
exactly what happened during this holiday season between Mrs. Fonteís Family
and Consumer Science students at
and Mrs. Lipp, Mrs. Kopf and Mrs. Schmittís third graders at
. While the students baked, the
halls of the middle school were filled with the aroma of 1000 sugar cookies.
Mrs. Lippís students at Huth Road Elementary school added the frosting,
sprinkles and a little bit of love before selling them the week of December 13th
to the 17th to students, teachers and faculty at the school.
Thank you to everybody who donated ingredients, baked sugar cookies,
frosting, bags, and sprinkles for the fundraiser.
What was learned by this exchange between schools?
The eighth graders realized that, although they have graduated from
elementary school, they could give back to others by using some of their
culinary skill as well as profit from their Entrepreneurship projects to provide
90 dozen cookies. Consequently, the
third graders learned to interact with their customers and put their math skills
into action making change as they raised money for the Huth Road Playground as
well as the American Cancer Society/Mary's Room.
We are looking forward to another successful fundraiser with almost 3,000
cookies to sell.
consider the following pictures:
