Fifth graders at South Valley school learn what it takes to open a business

Education

South Valley fifth graders are getting a sense of what it’s like to be entrepreneurs by opening their own businesses in the classroom. 

Students in Debbie Aragon’s class at Adobe Acres Elementary had to propose business plans this semester. 

Five were chosen to get put into practice, and Wednesday they got to “open” their businesses at the Adobe Acres Mall with fourth graders as their customers. 

“Out there in the real world they have to find a means to support themselves…How are they going to do it? Either working or opening a business, and they have a really good idea what it takes to open their own business,” Aragon said. 

Each student had a different job within the group including lawyer, accountant and publicist.
