Lemonade Day uses experiential learning to help students apply classroom topics to the world of work.

The classes  served lemonade and strawberry lemonade. And also served cookies, Chex mix, popcorn, and brownies. The children wrote the posters to advertise and printed the menu.

The PreK class voted to donate the money to the Indianapolis Humane Society since they came to speak to the students about responsible pet ownership and how the Humane Society helps dogs and cats find homes and brought along a rescue dog.

Preschool 1 decided to donate their half of the earnings to the American Red Cross to help the tornado victims in Oklahoma.
The students raised $150 altogether !!!
