There are opportunities for Scandia Elementary students to become more involved with their school. These activities allow students to develop their academic and social skills while enriching our school climate.
The Scandia School Store, "Star Mart" is operated by fourth, fifth and sixth grade students who were selected through an application process. These future entrepreneurs work at least one Friday each month at the store during their recess time. Students are involved in merchandising, marketing, inventory and sales. Students also take an active role in learning the roles of manager, accountant, and sales clerk.
Scandia Elementary News Network--SENN--is the weekly news show that is broadcast throughout the school. Interested students are involved in newscasting, video taping, and computer technology with the focus on media production. Each week classrooms tune in to listen to the opening words of "Welcome to SENN.." so they can hear the latest events and happenings at Scandia Elementary School.
