Entrepreneurship curriculum (NFTE)

Students in our Rise Up! after-school program began an entrepreneurship curriculum (NFTE) and are learning how to be innovative in business. To create products, students used typical household items such as: paper clips, straws, pipe cleaners, brown bags, plastic cups, toothpicks and more. Then, students had the opportunity to present their product to the group in a sales presentation. Eighth-grade student, Tin Nguyen, even managed to sell his product to another student! Great job, Spartans!

The Entrepreneurship Club meets every Wednesday at Rise Up! from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information, contact Alicia Trescott: trescott.alicia@richmondheightsschools.org.


A Black History Essay: February 2021

Please find time to view the brief video which contains a compilation of excerpts from our students’ MLK essays that were submitted to the EastView Church for their annual essay contest.  We had two students win monetary prizes for their submissions.  The video was done by our Rise Up After School Program (virtually); however, students are reading excerpts from their own essays.  Our students are doing some great things during this pandemic, as they witness the world change right before their very own eyes.
