Whitt kids donate to Sachse Animal Shelter

To demonstrate their understanding of entrepreneurship and persuasive techniques, the 4th grade GT students at Whitt Elementary, under the guidance of DD Saunders, started a Sticky Business by creating and selling products made of duct tape. They made posters to advertise and spoke on the announcements in the mornings to generate interest. Orders were taken by the students, designed by the students, and made by the students. Participants worked as a team to get everything created, sold and distributed. Some students even stayed after school and gave up their recess to make sure the business was a hit. The students chose to donate all of their profits to the Sachse Animal Shelter since their school address is in the city of Sachse. Recently, they handed over a check of $707. 51 that will help build more places to house cats and kittens.
