Denise Dacus’ fifth-grade math students at Simon Middle School raised $63.20 to be donated to the Mayflower/Vilonia relief fund.
Students Hadyn Rehak-Bishop, Erica Robertson, Elise McGarrity and Sabria Ryan, were assigned a Performance Task.
"The objective was to conduct an experiment to collect data that could be graphed on the coordinate plane," Dacus said.
With firm instructions, the girls developed a business plan to sell lemonade and brownies on a Sunday afternoon. They made the decision to donate the money at the beginning of the project.
"I’m so proud of these ladies, their work and their huge hearts," Dacus said.
