A group of first graders in Baldwin are learning how to run their own business.
Students at Ms. Renee MacDermott's class at Lenox Elementary School run "The Little Lenox Bakery." MacDermott says the bakery helps the children strengthen their math and financial literacy skills, as well as teaches them to communicate and collaborate.
The little entrepreneurs' teacher says they usually raise between $120 and $160 a month.
Each month, the money is given to a different charity. This month, proceeds will be given to Nassau / Suffolk Autism Society of America because it is Autism Awareness Month.
