Squantum School Store Re-Opening!

Grades 1 and 5 proudly announce the re-opening of the Squantum School Store.

What is it?

The School Store is cooperatively run by fifth and first grade students.  The students have specific, math-related tasks in selling school-related merchandise.

The purpose of the school store is to provide students with authentic math opportunities and the chance to work with students in other grades.  Teachers have created lessons that support the skills necessary to make transactions, calculate profit, and make ordering decisions.  Store activities are tied in with the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework in Mathematics, with an emphasis on Number Sense and Operations, and Data Analysis.

When is it open?

The store will be open on Friday afternoons.  Students may visit the store at the discretion of the teacher so that the educational services are not interrupted.  Students will be given advance notice of when the store is open.  This year, the store will be open:

  • December 2nd
