Pfaff students Madison Myers, Mya Taylor, Eva Amary, Amelia Bobnar, Annabelle Huber, and Harper Wetzel donated money they made to Last Chance Ranch.Beth Miller was scrolling through social media when he came across a photo with several familiar faces.

The post stated: “Changing the world one loom bracelet at a time. Proud of these girls for donating $200 from their Loom Room business to Last Chance Ranch today!”

Two of the girls, Madison Myers and Mya Taylor, had been in Mrs. Miller’s third-grade class at Pfaff Elementary School. The others were also Pfaff students, Eva Amary, Amelia Bobnar, Annabelle Huber, and Harper Wetzel.

After reading the post, Mrs. Miller reached out to one of the girl’s moms. She said what inspired the girls to make and donate these bracelets was what they learned in their Social Studies class. “We studied being entrepreneurs,” Mrs. Miller said. “We learned about a boy named Moe and how he made bow ties and then he donated the money.”

Mrs. Miller said the students learn about the economy, needs and wants, how to earn money by buying and selling, starting your own business, and how you can give back to the community.

“They just took it and ran with it,” she said. “I’m so proud of them. It’s awe-inspiring. They took something from school and did something meaningful. Seeing this makes my job worthwhile. I’m sure it’s a feel-good moment for them and for their parents.”
