Another successful Market Day is officially in the books! Check out scenes from Monday's bustling market here.
On Monday, April 29, Elementary students from the Magnolia, Red Oak and Sweet Gum classes sold their wares and goods to staff, parents, and fellow Aidan students at Spring Market Day. With the hum of live violin music echoing throughout the St. Thomas Church Auditorium, students and parents alike surveyed the offerings and stocked up on a variety of student-made goods.
Unlike the Fall Market Day, Monday's event was centered on a coin-based economy, where all goods were priced at $0.95 and below. The clink of coins could be heard throughout the hall as students applied their math skills and channeled their inner-entrepreneurial spirit to sell their goods, provide change, and ensure that all income logs added up.
The students raised close to $500 and the proceeds from Market Day will benefit a number of great charitable organizations selected by the students themselves. These organizations include: So Others Might Eat (SOME), Homeward Trails Pet Rescue, the Marshall Legacy Institute, ACLU, Hospital for Sick Children, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Grace Church Homeless Shelter and more.
A special thanks to all of our community members who helped make this Spring Market Day a sweet success!
