Woodson Fourth Graders Raise Nearly $600.00 to Purchase Coats for fellow Students

Woodson Elementary School Principal Kirstin Gibson reports the following………
“This spring I had a fourth grade student asked to have a meeting with me. We had lunch together one day and she explained that she noticed that some students did not have warm coats to wear. She proceeded to ask if she could organize a bake sale to raise money to purchase coats for students. As I asked her questions, she had a plan prepared for advertising, selling, and buying the coats. I was truly impressed as she truly wanted to help others and had developed a business plan! I approved her plan and she got to work. She and her mom started baking cupcakes and goodies and she created posters to advertise her sale. On the first day of sales, she had a line 30+ people long! The student elicited help from three of her friends. The girls sold diligently each morning during homeroom. The fruits of their labor was just short of $600! From there, the student worked with our Administrative Associate, Lee Ann Laird, to pick out coats and uniform sweaters. The items were purchased and are here to distribute in the fall/winter, as the weather turns cool. Attached is a photo of the girls and their purchased items. Principal Kirstin Gibson said, "What affected me the most about this was the fact that our student saw a need, created a plan, and executed it. At no point did she ask for a "shout out" or recognition. She just wanted to make an impact. Students like her are the future leaders of our world.”
