My Town Holland: Class project a sweet payoff for charities

HOLLAND, Mich.—A lesson in business at Eagle Crest Charter Academy is now helping families in need.

Every year, Maribeth Slusher’s fourth grade class hosts Slusher’s Sweet Shop, selling tasty holiday treats for $0.25 each during lunchtime between Thanksgiving and winter break. Slusher’s students are in charge of setting up shop, collecting money, checking inventory and giving the class a daily financial report.  The cookies and baked goods are made by Slusher and the students’ parents. 

This year, the class raised $1,005.34—all of which will go to local charities chosen by the students. 

This was the tenth year for Slusher’s Sweet Shop.
