MECC Kind Kids Club Makes a Difference for MHS Comet with CancerMason Early Childhood Center second graders in Nicole Elsasser, Jessica Mullen, Kathy Goebel, and Sarah Florh's classrooms are members of the Kind Kids Club - a class showcasing students' hard work, dedication and kind hearts. The Kind Kids Club are creating the experiences that we want to lift up as part of our #CometCulture.

The Kind Kids Club set up cafes in MECC classrooms to raise money for good causes. In the cafes, the students sell popsicles, popcorn, cookies, and more. Recently, the Kind Kids Club raised $1,847.26 for Blake Glover -  a fifteen year old Mason High School student who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in November. The money was donated toward Blake's treatment costs.

"We look for random acts of kindness throughout the school year. We decided to use our economics unit to not only learn valuable lessons, but also to raise money," explained Elsasser.

The students were in charge of everything. They applied for jobs after reflecting on their strengths, named their cafes, designed logos, filmed commercials, created posters, created menus with pricing, and planned for needed supplies. 

The day of the cafe, the students turned into servers, bussers, hosts and hostesses, and managers. 

"They had done such a tremendous job planning that us teachers sat back and watched them take ownership of the project. It was truly magical to see! We never imagined we'd collect so much money!" added Elsasser.

MECC parent Amy Stoltz had only wonderful things to share about the project.

"I wanted to thank all the teachers who worked so hard putting together the cafe to raise money for Blake. I was so impressed with how much time, effort and thought must have gone into this project to make it not only a thoughtful fundraiser for a fellow Mason student, but also a fantastic learning experience.  

From learning how to advocate for themselves by applying for jobs, to learning all of the parts needed to make a business work and the ins and outs of running a cafe, to reminders of how to be good patrons as well, my son learned so much about having a job, being part of a business and being a member of a community."
