On Friday, April 29th, the Class of 2022 participated in the National Lemonade Day. This year, the class sold lemonade to raise money for Friends of the Animals. Students created flyers to send home and a powerpoint to share with the student population to advertise for the sale. The day of the event, students mixed lemonade, decorated the stand and sold lemonade to the students. The sixth grade class raised over $650 to donate to Friends of the Animals.
Lemonade Day was brought to Louisiana in 2010 by entrepreneurs John Georges (CEO of Georges Enterprises) and Todd Graves (Founder, CEO, Fry Cook & Cashier of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers). John and Todd both received their first taste of business by operating their own lemonade stands as kids. The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow.
