Student Expo/Ice Cream Social

 Friday, May 11, 2018

6:30 - 8:30pm (doors open for set up at 6pm)

Get ready for a new CHARIS event…the Student Expo and Entrepreneur Fair!

The annual Student Expo has long been a CHARIS favorite (and not just because it ends with an ice cream social!). Kids enjoy displaying projects they've poured their time and effort into and admiring those of other students, and we've even enjoyed musical and dance performances and live animals (crated/caged, of course).

Now the Expo will also give our budding entrepreneurs a chance to promote their businesses and sell their goods to each other, friends, family and neighbors. Students can sell any number of handmade creations such as baked goods, jewelry, art, crafts, bookmarks, plants—the sky is the limit.

Older students who offer services such as lawn care or childcare are welcome to set up a booth advertising their company to the local community. This event is for homeschooling kids of all ages. Even the youngest student can simply bake cookies and practice making change while earning a few dollars.

Mark your calendars for this fun family event
