Every elementary school has a holiday sale that allows students to go shopping for their friends and family, but Seaford Manor Elementary School’s Snowflake Village also includes a charitable component.
Second graders create handmade items with proceeds from their sales going to a charity of their choice. This year, students made flower pens, necklaces, ornaments and wreath pins, among other items, which were quickly purchased by eager young shoppers.
Before making and selling their items, second graders learned about business concepts including supply and demand, and producers and consumers. After their sales were complete, students from Jean Aplustille, AnneMarie Motisi and Denise Stevens’ classes selected the Heartprint Fund as its charity. The organization is run by Manor school nurse Julie Canale to benefit Seaford families in need.
