Third Grade Spirit Wear Sales-The Hawk Shop Story
Please see below for a note from our third graders. Order forms were sent home with each student on Wednesday. I am also including a link for the form. Please note that T-shirts are 100% cotton and hoodies are 50/50.
The Hawk Shop Story
Hi! We are The Hawk Shop (third graders). This is the story of how we began our business. It all started with a math unit that had to do with a t-shirt business. Then a few third graders said, “Let's start a t-shirt business!” So, we wrote persuasive speeches, presented them to Mrs. Hilpert, and she gave us approval to start a business. You might think that then it just happened. But it didn’t. We have met with our business partners from Embroider the Occasion in Webster Groves multiple times, and they have helped us learn how to start a business. We decided on our company name, created designs, gave each other feedback, revised our designs, then had a school-wide vote. After that we figured out what needs to happen to sell our products, and we’re finally ready. Yeah, this was not the snap of a finger! We decided that all money we make will go to charity and educational field trips.
We appreciate your support of The Hawk Shop! Selling our shirts is really important to us, and we are excited to see our business happening. Some of us will start our own business someday when we grow up, and this experience has taught us a lot. Thanks for being a part of it!
