Students in Mrs. Jessica Daugherty’s high ability class at Fortville Elementary School have been participating in a unique STEM project with Katey Kitterman from Sunrise Bakery. The students were assigned to create a bakery of their own- including a business model, recipe chart, and marketing techniques to help them learn about strategic planning.
In order to simulate the environment of a small bakery and the demand for well-made products, students filled donut orders. Additionally, students brainstormed flavor ideas for donuts, and Sunrise Bakery is going to use some of the ideas that the students came up with as products to be sold.
Mrs. Daugherty and Ms. Kitterman are hoping to plan a Fortville Elementary Donut Day at Sunrise for students and their families to try the flavors they created. Special thanks to Ms. Kitterman with Sunrise Donuts for sharing their passion for their business with Mt. Vernon students, and giving them an amazing hands on learning experience!
