Today was the second annual 5th Grade Lemonade War! The students just finished reading "The Lemonade War" and learning about economics. Using what they've learned, each group had to make a business plan, research prices, and develop a recipe. Our winning group was Sweet and Sour Lemonade, run by Januari Burnett, Bentley Blackburn, and Ellie Patrick! Mrs. Rivera is incredibly proud of everyone's hard work. Great job, 5th grade!
Thank you to one of our first grade parents for helping us get watercolor paints, a new reading couch, and some treats for our classroom. We love them!
