Lemonade Day taught students in Dr. Theresa Petrick’s third-grade class about how to start, own and operate their own business. Over the weekend of May 4th and 5th, Henry Marth, Collin Menary, Jack Zaranec, Elijah Park, Carson Uchbar set-up business in the community and raised over $1,000 with their classmates to benefit Rescue Village. Thank you to Mazzulo’s Market, The Popcorn Shop, Petitti’s Garden Center and Lowe’s Greenhouse for hosting these young entrepreneurs.
Hands-on lesson makes a difference
For the fourth year, students in Mr. Christian Barrus’ Honors and AP Physics classes have worked with the RePlay for Kids organization to adapt toys with assistive devices for children who need them. Physics students learned about basic electronics, problem-solving and the needs of children with disabilities.
Senior, Justin Fuller, along with his classmates, modified 44 toys, rainbow lights, bobblehead robots, bubble camera and dancing characters for children with disabilities. This is the first year, which the lab was run entirely by Mr. Barrus and his student teacher, Ms. Natalie Nielsen.
