Trep$ (5th graders)

TREP$ 2017


Please don’t forget to attach the $25 Bragg Activities Fee made out to the Board of Ed. when registering.

    TREP$, the exciting, after school program, is being offered to 5th Grade students who are interested in being young entrepreneurs. The children will learn how to prepare for, start and operate their own business. This extracurricular learning opportunity begins with after school workshops. In these workshops, students will learn their entrepreneurship skills and prepare for the Mini-SHARK TANK where they will present their product(s) to parents and local business entrepreneurs. Then their culminating activity will be selling their product(s) at the TREP$ MARKET PLACE in December. This program takes place over an 8 week period, and is a unique and wonderful experience for ALL 5th Grade participants.

    The business idea your child has, can be as basic as a lemonade stand. We will help them with everything from brainstorming ideas, to pricing and display. It should be a fun experience, where your child is learning by DOING, and having fun the entire time. For business ideas Google TREP$ Market Place, or visit “Pinterest”, or go to for many great ideas.

    PARENTS: Want to help? That would be GREAT! Please look on the attached registration form to volunteer, and to get your child registered.  

The TREP$ workshops will cover topics such as: Product Development, Marketing, Sales, Customer Service, Pricing, Handling Money, Knowing Your Target Market, and the importance of Donating and Supporting Your Community. The workshops will be held in the Bragg Cafeteria on Mondays and one Tuesday from 3:20 pm – 5:20 pm.
