Students at Eyer Middle School, in conjunction with the computers and business courses, will become entrepreneurs by operating a school store. Students will explore the digital world and the impact it has on individuals and business. At the Eyer School Store, they will incorporate the use of Microsoft Office products to produce business documents. For example, they will use Excel to record and chart financial aspects of the business, Adobe products to produce marketing campaigns, and Google Sites to create and edit websites.
Mr. Haley, teacher at Eyer Middle School, recognized a need for teenagers to acquire job skills for their part-time jobs that most will be applying for in the upcoming years. These entry-based positions are where most teenagers will be employed. Students will be able to apply for a job to work at the school store which will be open during homeroom, lunch periods, and period 9 on certain days. The students will use the latest technology and apps to operate a successful business, including Point-of-Sale hardware and software. These skills will be highly valuable for teenagers when applying for jobs in the near future. Great job, Eyer. We can’t wait to start shopping!
