Lemonade Day at Yellowstone Academy
It's Lemonade Day at Yellowstone!
Houston, Texas: Yellowstone Academy is excited to host its second annual Lemonade Day on Friday, May 4th. In partnership with Lemonade Day! Houston and Cadence Bank, Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches our students how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. Come out and support our students' businesses and enjoy a refreshing glass of lemonade!
Early Childhood (PreK-Kindergarten): 8:30 a.m. -- 10 a.m.
Elementary (1st-4th Grades): 11:30 a.m. -- 1 p.m.
Middle School (5th-8th Grades): 2 p.m. -- 3:30 p.m.
Students from Pre-K all the way through 8th grade have been preparing for weeks. Some have focused on creating the best lemonade recipe while others have spent their time on marketing or perfecting their brand. Students were encouraged to find investors to help get their businesses off the ground by presenting their business plans and receiving feedback.
After Lemonade Day has concluded, students in each homeroom will count up the cash their class earned, pay back their investors, and invest a portion into the community through supporting a local non-profit. And of course, they get to keep the rest of their profits and decide as a class how they want to spend it!
Lemonade Day is a strategic lesson-based program that walks youth from a dream to a business plan, while teaching them the same principles required to start any company. Inspiring kids to work hard and make a profit, they are also taught to spend some, save some and share some by giving back to their community. Since its launch in 2007 in Houston Texas, Lemonade Day has grown from serving 2,700 kids in one city to 1 million children across North America. Lemonade Day sparks the spirit of entrepreneurship and empowers youth to set goals, work hard, and achieve their dreams.
