Deer Park Elementary Pop-Up Store

Who: Deer Park Elementary students

What: Market Day Dollar Store

When: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, March 1

Where: Deer Park Elementary School media center
             8636 Trouble Creek Road, New Port Richey

Why: The “Key Deer” student group has been learning about economics, and has designed and created products that they will sell to other students at their pop-up store.

How: Market Day is the culmination of a year-long service project to support the A.S.P.C.A., the charity chosen by the students involved. Students will offer products “for kids, by kids,” such as duct tape wallets, bug hats, shark tooth necklaces, bracelets, and more. Students from all classes can shop for these fun items while they help raise money to provide aid to animals in need. Best of all, everything will cost just a dollar.  All proceeds will go directly to the aforementioned charity.
