A Christmas Market filled with entrepreneurs …

The Christmas Market at VRG was not your typical Swedish Christmas market.  It was a showcase of student ideas, student work, and student enthusiasm.  On December 16, we welcomed guests into our school to learn more about how we work.  The students in our Entrepreneurship classes, music classes, and our art classes worked together to provide a market full of authentic learning.

Students in our entrepreneurship classes have started their own companies – each with their own unique idea:  Sports Buddy – a company that pairs older teenagers with younger students for sports training; lip balm for chapped lips where all proceeds go towards operations for children with malformed mouths; an easy carrying belt for skis; a drinks recipe for alcohol free drinks; and much, much more.

And, thanks to our hard-working teachers who coached our students to help them reach this level.

Having a showcase for your work provides an authentic aspect to learning – this market did just that …
