Jr High Microeconomy
This coming Grandparent's Day, Friday, May 25, the TCH Jr High Class will be selling homemade cards and jewelry from our Microeconomy workshop outside the gym of the TCH Children’s House. The Jr High Microeconomy workshop is intended to teach those in the Jr High the aspects of how to run a business. For this year’s project, we have chosen to sell cards that we made ourselves. There is a wide variety of cards, large ones that will be sold for the price of $6.00 and small cards that will be sold for $4.00, with deals like three large cards for $15.00 and three small cards for $10.00. There will also be a small selection of handmade jewelry made by the students. We look forward to seeing you on May 25. Happy Grandparents Day!
