Students use their business sense

Junior Achievement students take part in the Spring Into Action show this Saturday in Cache Creek.

The grade 6/7 students in Mrs. Patterson’s class at Cache Creek Elementary have been busy working on their businesses for the upcoming Spring Into Action Fair that will be held on May 4, from 10 am – 2 pm at the Cache Creek Community Hall.

The class has recently completed the A Business of Our Own course by Junior Achievement, instructed by Marcie Down. They are putting their newly acquired business skills to work in starting their own businesses from book sales, clothing, cupcakes, artwork, Ductopia, to video games!

Come and support the students and pick up a good read for your summer vacation. Sales of the books go towards the Grade 6/7 end of the year field trip to Silver Lake. If you have some books to donate for the book sale please bring them to the Cache Creek Elementary School by the end of the school day on Friday.

While you’re in the area, plan to bring your hazardous waste to the TNRD’s annual Hazardous Waste pickup in the Community Centre’s parking lot in front of the InfoCentre just off Hwy 97.

And plan to take in the Opening Day of the Cache Creek Farmer & Flea Market next to Chum’s restaurant.
