Students are designing, making and selling headbands, scrunchies and bracelets. They also are using their math and computer skills to keep track of inventory and sales.
The fourth graders were inspired by Kid President, a child about their age who has a disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Kid President (www.kidpresident.com) makes inspiring videos to encourage children and adults to “make their world more awesome.”
“Our students decided to make our world more awesome by making these things, selling them, and giving the proceeds to St. Jude’s for Osteogenesis Imperfecta research,” said Sydney Mercado, one of the fourth grade teachers.
