Warde entrepreneurship class starts business with charitable benefits

The first week of sales for Fairfield Warde High School’s entrepreneurship class began the week of Oct. 10. The class is simulating a business by selling shirts to the community, with a percentage of the proceeds to be donated to the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center.

warde-front-shirtEntrepreneurship is a course designed to expose students to the risks and rewards of creating and running a small business. Students will explore aspects of entrepreneurship through problem solving, critical thinking, and the development of projects and activities. This course will provide students the opportunity to create change by channeling their passions and interests into businesses.

Entrepreneurship focuses on recognizing a business opportunity, starting a business based on opportunity, and operating and maintaining that business. Students will develop an appreciation and understanding of entrepreneurship in our economy providing them with strategies that will assist them as they develop into responsible citizens, wage-earners and consumers.

Purchasing the Warde shirt will demonstrate support for the business education program at Warde High School as well for Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center. The shirts will be produced by local business MacWear using the 50/50 (Polyester and cotton) athletic material. Shirt sizes come in a men’s small, medium, large, and extra large. Students will be selling them for $20 each.
