CupidÕs Cuties raise money for tuition assistance
Submitted By Rosanne Lyon
With compassionate hearts, the third graders of St. Edward School in Newark put their business skills into practice as they worked together to create a ValentineÕs store, ÒCupidÕs Cuties.Ó
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 ValentineÕs 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, CupidÕs 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 over $7,000 to help children receive a Catholic education.
