Making a difference one mobile school store at a time! The Student Leadership Club at Heritage School, advised by Mrs. Pete and Mrs. Turner, are showing the impact of being responsible, respectful, and kinder than necessary, in order to make a positive difference in another student or staff member’s life.
The mobile school store travels to different classes throughout the day, rewarding their fellow classmates for their positive actions. When a student has enough blue tickets received from making a difference, they are able to purchase a prize in return. One is only able to receive tickets for outstanding, out-of-the-ordinary actions. The value of a ticket is based on the value of the positive impact.
Not only does the Heritage School Store promote better behavior, but it also exposes the students to the business world. Through promoting the store to the entire school, students gain knowledge on marketing. They are also expressing creativity finding extraordinary ways to have a positive impact on each other, as classmates.
By 2025, the time the Leadership Club students graduate high school, there is a projected 30% growth rate of jobs in the business world. Being young and learning the foundational knowledge of being an entrepreneur will prepare these students for the real world by giving them experience in marketing, selling, communicating, creating and maintaining relationships with customers. All of this is done while maintaining a positive atmosphere for everyone involved.
“The Foundation provided a grant to purchase the prizes for the earned positive tickets to create the school store. This has also has a positive impact on the students and the understanding of the 4 C’s of Creativity, Collaboration, Communication and Critical Thinking.” -Mrs. Pete and Mrs. Turner.
