Mr. Sena's Weekly News
3rd Grade Gwin Oaks
This week we introduced the next phase. Students can create products and sell them for Bucky Bucks! We already have several students that have purchased a Business License ($5 Bucky Bucks) and have started selling products they have created during recess. It's amazing to see students get excited about being creative, and using their skills to create a business. One item that I have stressed to the class is that this will never interfere with our learning in the classroom. I am excited to see what amazing products and ideas are fostered and created over the coming months.
If any classroom parents own a business, I would love to speak with you about coming in to speak with the class about what it means to be an entrepreneur!
Class Store Help Needed!
One persons junk is another persons treasure!
If you have any old toys, or items that can be donated to supply our class store....we all would be very appreciative! These items will help supply our class store which we will open and use our Bucky Bucks earned from our classroom jobs. Students will use their Bucky Bucks that they earn to buy items. Please help if you can!
If you have any questions, please let me know.
