Helping children attend Catholic schools
With compassionate hearts, the third-graders at St. Edward School in Newark put their business skills to practice as they worked together to create "Cupid's Cuties," a Valentine's store. Dressed in white and wearing heart-filled halos, these dedicated entrepreneurs spent several days making merchandise, designing advertisements and selling their products to all members of the school community during recess and lunch. From rainbow loom bracelets and Valentine's Day cards to homemade cake pops and lemonade, the students learned ways to run a business and apply their math skills. Through their labor of love, Cupid's Cuties raised almost $900 for Koins for Kids, an outreach that provides tuition assistance for students attending Vision of Hope Dominican schools. This year, St. Edward School raised more than $7,000 to help children receive a Catholic education.
