For those who don’t know, Pizza Friday is a micro-business operated by the Junior High students. Every Friday we order pizza from Papa Johns and add salad, carrots, fresh fruit, and a choice of milk. One third of the money earned goes to a nonprofit of our choice, another third goes to the school, and the last third goes to the Junior High classroom for a school trip later in the year. We are involved in marketing, taking orders from our customers, creating spreadsheets to track orders and finances and ordering and preparing the food. Then, each Friday, four JH students set up and distribute the pizza to the rest of the school.
Last school year, Audrey DeLano created a Pizza Friday website template for her capstone project. With the help of Thomas Bland who is adding functionality, we’re hoping to begin using the website this year. It will be used for ordering, taking payments and tracking orders.
