2018 Youth Marketplace

Fifth and sixth grade students are becoming business entrepreneurs. In teams, they have done market research to learn what local people might want to buy. They wrote business plan proposals so that they could borrow money from the bank for purchasing raw materials. This meant learning how to calculate an interest rate and calculate the sales tax required for each of their products. Duane Tlusty from Viking State bank listened to students business proposal and examined their prototypes. Then he decided if they had done their work carefully enough to merit a bank loan. Students sold their products at the Spring Fling event on April 26, 2018

2018 Bike Rodeo

The Annual NW Bike Rodeo was held on May 1 with 1st and 2nd grade students. The weather cooperated and we had a beautiful day. All was successful! Lee Goedken from the sheriff's department came and helped cover basic road safety and helped out with our intersection station.

We also had a bike trail/passing station and a 'lawn mower' station. Kids also were able to ride around the track a few times. Several parents also helped out making sure each station ran smoothly.
