Birth of a Salesman

Celery Salesman

This year we’ve had a surplus of celery seedlings.  It’s a little crazy how many seeds come in a packet.  This surplus makes for a great fundraising opportunity and no, it’s not one of those awkward, uncomfortable, “can you do us a favor?” kind of fundraisers.  Here we have a great product for a great price.  Our students recognize this and take pride in participating.  It’s fun to watch a first grader try their hand at sales and feel the excitement of “closing the deal”.  They get it.   Sometimes the “click” is almost audible.
