Spotlight on 2nd Grade

During the month of March our second graders learned about economics and financial literacy. Our students learned to understand basic economic concepts. All of our second graders at New Town became producers in a business to support Relay for Life! They made products to sell to family members (consumers) at our Hawksome Helpers store.

Students were responsible for making, pricing, and selling the products. The classes provided a service (raising funds) to those in our community who suffer from cancer. This was not only very educational, but also meaningful and we raised approximately $1,600!
