Fifth graders from Santapogue Elementary School were swimming in dangerous waters on June 11 as they participated in a “Shark Tank” event to pitch their ideas to the “sharks” from central administration.

As part of their economics project, the fifth graders worked with Ms. Nocerino to come up with a product or service to pitch to the sharks. Working in small groups, the students presented their startup company and spoke to the sharks about their costs, profits and the investments they needed to grow their business. Just like the television show, the sharks went head to head to offer different deals to the students. There were 19 different groups who were offering unique ideas and products for a stake in their business. Not only did students learn the economics of business, but the project also enhanced their presentation, communication and collaboration skills.

Keep that drive and continue to put in that effort as you move forward in life.”
