  1. Mrs.Perez, will we have an entrepreneur club this year? I was in it last year and I would love to have one again this year. Thank you so much. – Julia Palma, 6th grade

    • Hi Julia, yes we will start Entrepreneur Club next quarter. We will be including business lessons and other activities into the program to make it better, so I look forward to a great program! Mrs. Perez

      • Hi Mrs. Perez, I just wanted to know when we were going to start the Entrepreneur Club because I wanted to know when to get started making my products! Thanks!

      • Hi Isabella! You have perfect timing! We will be sending home an invitation to all 4th, 5th, and 6th graders next week to invite them to join our Salt Creek Entrepreneur Academy. The Academy will be very exciting as you will learn about how to best develop your product ideas and how to create a business plan. You will need to attend three Academy sessions in order to participate in the fair. Please look out for that announcement and come to the first Academy session before you start making your products. I can’t wait for the program to get started! Mrs. Perez

    • Hi Mrs. Mosquiera! Thanks for inquiring! I’ve just posted the dates on the Entrepreneur Academy Page. I hope this helps! I look forward to another great session with great learning, creative businesses and goods from our students! Mrs. Perez
