Seminole Students Learn How a Community Works With a MicroSociety

Stenstrom on News 6

Stenstrom Elementary School in Oveido, Florida, gave News 6 WKMG anchor Julie Broughton a tour of its “MicrOveido” MicroSociety. She visited businesses like the Stallion Supply Station, Addition Financial, Stallion News Network, and Stenstrom Harvest, all of which are managed by students in third to fifth grade.

“It’s exciting because we’re offering kids the opportunity to be future leaders in our community, and that’s what is really neat to me,” said Principal Jake Novak. “So we’re teaching them skills that you’re not going to get in a normal elementary school setting which allows them to be those future leaders.”

Hear from Holton Mills of Addition Financial Credit Union, who explained how the local bank helped MicrOveido’s bank get up and running. It takes a village to grow an excellent MicroSociety!
