Crafty Kids Care About Their Community

WEST HARTFORD - Mrs. Nora Brown's third-grade class at Charter Oak International Academy created and ran a business called Crafty Kids, whose slogan is "We make it because we care." The student-run business was established as part of their economics unit to benefit the Bridge Family Center's school-based Family Resource Center. The children made and sold bracelets and bookmarks ranging in price from 25 cents to $1 at their school store.
