Selling items like how-to and performance videos, as well as secret family recipes, the kindergarten class raised over $400 for the charity organization, No Kid Hungry, with their virtual Camp Kindergarten Store.
As part of their economics unit, students learned the three ways to use money: saving, spending, and donating. Students applied for various roles within the store and worked with the Sage community as marketers and community outreach, store greeters, cashiers, purchasing agents and more.
To encourage donations for the fundraiser, the class also challenged Sage community members to the “Bucket O’Mud Challenge.” For a fee, community members paid to nominate students and faculty to dump a bucket of mud on their head!
The Marketing and Outreach teams announced the store’s success at the virtual All School School meeting. Funds raised exceeded the class’ short-term savings goal of $170. Raising a grand total of $661.75, the class was able to purchase an olive tree and have an ice cream party, with the remaining proceeds of $403.12 going to the No Kid Hungry charity organization.
That's right! Head of School, Marie Leary, has accepted the Bucket O' Mud Challenge after being nominated by the Hirshfield family! #ThankYouHirshfields #NoKidHungry
