GVE ALA Lemonade Day 2 C.jpg
Submitted photos- Glen View Elementary students recently took a special trip to Walmart to grocery shop for food to give to the local Christian Commnity Action food bank. Students used calculators and clip boards with pen and paper for addition and multiplication of the price of the items they bought, all having to stay under a $50 budget. Eleven parents helped and, at the end, the students had puechased 225 items with a total cost of $308.59. Under the direction of instructor Linda Wallace, the first grade Advanced Learning Academy at Glen View Elementary presented its first performance of “The Little Red Hen” to a standing-room only audience of family, friends and district personnel with additional presentations slated for other school and community groups. Parents watched cast members Scarlett Revels (as the Cat), Bryton Carr (as the Pig) and David Gunasekaran (as the Fox) enact the story for the guests. At the conclusion of the event, Wallace shared with the group the incredible success of the students throughout their experience in ALA with reading scores soaring and educational experience truly enriched. All students will now move on to the second grade ALA next year with even bigger plans in store for the advanced learning opportunity.      

For the students in Glen View Elementary School’s second grade Advanced Learning Academy, their 2014 Lemonade Day Project was nothing but a sweet treat. Utilizing the “How to Make Lemonade” book from the required Reading A-Z series, the students engaged in a series of events that introduced entrepreneurship to the youngsters as well as the importance of giving back to the community.
