The Eighth Grade Annual Maine Sampler Holiday Craft Fair will be held on Wednesday, December 18th from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the Sebasticook Valley Middle School Gymnasium, located at 337 Williams Road in Newport. This will be open to the public.
All of the 8th grade students will participate in an Economics unit by creating a small business using the “Lemonade Stand” model. This model has students looking at many aspects of running a business such as supply and demand, target audience, advertising, startup costs, and capital.
In addition, as part of Maine Studies, students will explore natural resources of Maine and how these are unique for the geographical region in which it is located. Together these curriculum requirements make for their biggest fundraiser which goes toward the class Recognition Ceremony and June class trip.
Parents are asked to be thinking about a craft product that they could make several of to sell at their Annual Maine Sampler Holiday Craft Fair.
