Woodside students learn to be entrepreneurs

 

What if you had opened a lemonade stand in the local park and suddenly your supplier had no lemons for you?

That was one of the problems presented to fourth-graders at Woodside Elementary School as part of the school's third annual Junior Achievement Day.

Each year parent volunteers spend part of a school day teaching students in kindergarten through fourth grade about how to run their own businesses. This year's event was May 29.

Woodside Superintendent Beth Polito said the program teaches lessons about preparing for the work world, starting a business, and developing financial skills needed to run a business.

The program "is a wonderful way to allow our very diverse and interesting parent population to share their work experience," Superintendent Polito said.
