Learning to Give Back
Parkside organize products for shoppers
From left, Lyla Doyle, Kloe Jordan and Kailyn Ringhand organize products for shoppers at Parkside Elementary School’s store.
Parkside Elementary School’s store is run by third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students. The students select products to sell, add prices to the products, advertise and staff the school store on days it is open. The goal is to teach students about generosity, so each year 80% of profits are given to charity.
