Heart Mart 2015
Heart Mart, an annual event that takes place at Terrace Park Elementary each Valentine's Day and ties in with the fourth graders' study of economics, was held on February 12. As is the tradition, the fourth graders, along with parent "business owners", created 12 unique products which they sold to the TPE students and staff members. This year's Heart Mart made $837.00, with the proceeds going to JDRF, SPCA, and Children's Hospital.
Some of the businesses and products were:
You're the Balm- Valentine decorated lip balm
Pick-a-Pocket- duct tape wallets
Chalk It Up- homemade sidewalk chalk
My Furry Valentine- dog treats
