Special to the Chronicle
Mrs. Basso’s and Mrs. Ancheta’s Grade 6 classes at Oliver Elementary School have been learning about entrepreneurship and how to run their own business.
They organized a Wellness Market on Tuesday, June 12 to sell some of the products the pupils made. The products were designed to help you feel better about yourself and/or help you focus on your learning at school.
Students created a business plan, developed marketing strategies, and promoted their products to their consumers.
Partial proceeds ($250) will be going to children and youth mental health programs in the local community.
Chad Teigen came to talk to the students about stress, ways to handle it, as well as various services that youth can access for help.
