Lower School Girls Mean Business

This week, a group of our Lower School students ran their very own lemonade stand! They were all participants of the My First Lemonade Stand after-school enrichment program. During the course of the program, they have been learning what it means to be an entrepreneur and how much work goes into being a business owner. They have also learned about donating money and time, revenue, cost and profit, and how to advertise—all through the development of their lemonade stand. 

To run the stand, they created their own name, logo, and slogan, and they also developed their very own recipe, which all the lemonade stand patrons were raving about! Lincoln School students, faculty, staff, friends, families, and neighbors even stopped by to pay a visit to the lemonade stand, named “Lovely Lemonade.” Grabbing an ice-cold cup of lemonade for just $1 (with free refills!) was the perfect way to cap off the gorgeous spring day. In the end, they made $134.75 and opted to donate all of the proceeds to Big Sisters RI. 

This is just one example of the incredible things that are happening here at Lincoln even after the regular school hours end. And even though our school year is coming to an end and thus our after-school enrichments are winding down as well, we’re simultaneously gearing up for a jam-packed Summer at Lincoln with several offerings, including the very popular My First Lemonade Stand. 

You can sign up for one of the Girls Mean Business Camps HERE, and we can’t wait to see our Lower School friends at extended day again in the fall!
