A group of Lenihan sixth graders turned a project running a concession stand into a fundraiser for the Marshalltown High School Roundhouse renovation.
The students, part of the Extended Learning Program, raised $780 through their school concession stand. They presented a check to MHS principal Aiddy Phomvisay on the last day of school, May 31.
Students chose the items to sell, developed a marketing plan, set a budget, and handled the operations. The concession stand was open after school during second semester.
“I was so proud and grateful to these students and their teacher,” Phomvisay said. “It demonstrates the school and community spirit that’s evident in all of our students.”
