Seventh Grade Hosts Valentine Themed Pop Up Shop

The Lausanne seventh grade is doing their part to help Lynx prepare for Valentine's Day by hosting pop-up shops. 

As part of their business, LCS Innovations, they held a pop-up shop on Tuesday and will hold another on Thursday for those looking for last minute gift ideas. 

"Real World Scholars really makes us, as 7th graders, realize how companies are run and just how many things have to be taken into consideration for every decision," David Burnham '24 said. 

The Valentine-themed products will be available on Thursday outside Tully Dining Hall from 12:00-1:00 p.m. or while supplies last. 

The items available range from bath bombs to candles. A full list of products and prices can be found on their website.

"The students look forward to our RWS days, and selling their products.  They come in early, stay in during common time, and stay after school to work on their products.  As a teacher, it is exciting to see them so engaged in learning math. I am so proud of how much they have accomplished this year.  From creating mission statements and business plans, to redesigning logos and websites, these students have worked hard to create quality products and develop an understanding of what it takes to run a business," teacher Amy Brownlee said. "These students also get to decide what to do with their profits.  This cross-curricular project focuses on solving food inequity in our community.  They have already generated some amazing ideas and I cannot wait to see what they do!"

All of the profits from this sale will help fund the students' mission of solving the food inequity issues in our community.

 "I really love RWS days because they are really fun and we get to learn skills that are necessary for creating a social enterprise.  Also, it feels really good after a popup shop because all of our profits are going to fight food inequity in our community," Mackenzie Mink '24 said.
