4th Grade Enrichment Class

  • Sweet Friends is an amazing business for kids. You can buy cookies, chocolate, and face painting. We are kind and we will love for you to buy from us. There are three of us: Colbie, Matthew, and Elijah from 4A.

  • Nate’s Notes is selling note cards. See you there!
  • Zoe Jallorina and Elaina Wi are selling slime, Salvation Slime. Each Slime is $3.00 each.  They are donating half of the money to St. Jude’s Charity.  Don’t miss it!
  • “Gifts for All”, by Marissa Merkel, sells lollipops. Her classmates say the lollipops are very good! If you buy three, you get two for free! Fifteen percent of the profit goes to little children all over the world.  Please stop by my booth during the book fair to help me with my goal!
  • Tristan, a young entrepreneur, his business WWW (World Wide Water) is trying to raise $50.00. Ten percent of the profits will go to his local church and the other ninety percent will go into savings for later in my life.  My job is selling purified water for people who need a drink.
