Most Blessed Sacrament Students Taste Entrepreneurship with Classroom Restaurants

April 17, 2019

Students at Most Blessed Sacrament School in Baton Rouge have been putting the lessons they have learned through the Junior Achievement curriculum to work by teaming up to create Italian and Mexican restaurants in Rebecca Daigle's and Rebecca Miller's fourth grade classes.

Students developed resumes with references and applied for jobs in the restaurants, which opened to parents April 10 & 11.

"In JA, students learn about the qualities of an entrepreneur, terms like profit, revenue, loss, and distribution," Rebecca Daigle said. "The students have been so excited and completely engaged. All the students have a job in the restaurant, and their family members will be the guests. We will serve real food and use real money, so it is a life-like simulation of entrepreneurship."
