Introduction by Ashly Medel, Jasmine Hernandez, Angel Garcia, Dalia Hernandez Grade 10 Having a school that specializes in the world of business is very helpful in a student’s education. Learning how to make business plans teaches students what to expect. It is the same with making business letters. Moreover, students get to know and experience what it must be like to actually start making a business in the real world. Students also get to learn how things work which is very important. Having a knowledge of business at a young age truly does help in the future. We often use the 21st century skills in class. The way we use communication in our classrooms is we take turns and give out our opinions on the topic. We compare things from the past to now to see how different the world is. We use critical thinking when we talk about a certain topic, for example, when we want to know what the author wants to tell us by writing a speech, story, or poem. The way we use collaboration in our classroom is when the teacher asks us to come together as a group or pairs to answer questions or get ideas from each other. Creativity comes in hand when we are making posters for things wwe have learned or read in class. For example, in English​ class we did a nimi poster on the book called ​Animal Farm. We were able to draw what came to mind when reading the “Seven Animalism Commandments.” Our teacher, Ms. Hudson, let us choose the colors we wanted and be creative with our posters. In the School of Business, P.R.I.D.E. is used to meet high academic standards. The teachers focus on us making sure we the students are always prepared to gain new knowledge. With the use of technology and different thinking skills, such as critical or analytical, makes academic challenges not so much of a challenge. The School of Business’ goal has always been to persuade and make sure students are determined to go to college / university and pursue a career. We the students are always empowered to ask questions and pursue academic success. Business plans and business letters are used in the real world when you have a job. They are mainly used in jobs because it makes it sound more professional. You’re trying to get your point right across explaining to the person what you want, or what they can improve on. You’re not going to send a regular letter saying “I think” because it doesn’t sound right. Saying “I believe” or “what you can do to improve this area” sounds better. When you’re in a company you want to sound as if you are actually serious about it and not just playing around. Having business plans is also used in the real world when planning things ahead. Planning things help a lot by having everything you need right there, instead of struggling to figure out what you need. Business planning and business letters go hand in hand by having the main ideas all planned out to help you get right into the business letter and not get stopped by not knowing what to do.

Geometry & Algebra II A man named Paul Wachter once said, “Math people are math people. When you approach them with investments and business, they don’t just ask the soft questions but eventually get to the hard questions.” What this quote means to me is that eventually things get harder. They do this because they want something, to gain more. They go through these questions to make sure that they have a profit. They see numbers and want an amount that would benefit them, as well the person investing. They want things to be correct and to go smoothly and for the investment or business to be a sure thing. When I’m in my math class, I usually go through my answer over and over checking to see if it is correct and if possible I check it by doing it a different way until I’m convinced it is correct. - Andres Ochoa, 10th grade

Mr. Swihart, Algebra II September 6, 2016 Ms. Blanchard 1444 S. City Denville, CA 90451 Dear Ms. Blanchard: I hope you’re doing well. My name is Tiffany Carranza, and I’m a student at West Adams Preparatory high school. I’m writing this letter in regards to changing the uniform policy. My friends and I have thought about it when people were getting stopped at the front entrance door. We’re hoping that you are willing to take the time to try to understand what we’re trying to say. In Robin’s honors society a group I’m in, the students are inspired to go for what we believe in. We don’t think that uniform should be forced to be wore. Uniform takes away individuality and it’s very expensive. Not everyone can afford it. People have already had regular clothes at home. Having to buy uniform every year costs more than buying regular close that you can reuse, you can’t reuse uniform after high school. Also a lot of people can’t afford the uniform so they come to school without it and then they get in trouble. It’s just not fair. We’ve brought this subject up with the principle but she just won’t listen and she doesn’t have the time. Our goal cannot be reached without some help. That is why we have come to you. You have a good reputation when it comes to and to helping other people make a change. I hope you understand where we are coming from and are willing to help us. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (213)974-6539. I hope this is the beginning of a productive partnership. Sincerely, Tiffany Carranza, student, West Adams Preparatory High School 1657 S. Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90045

English 9 & 10 Jack Welch stats that “Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.” His quote gives an idea of passion towards good business leaders and how they want their image to succeed to live. The quote gives an idea to the reader on how they want them to understand how good business leaders want to create new visions and how they want them to drive toward articulating and completion. From this quote I would like to say that many people have had a great influence toward some idea that they made happen and became a success. For example, Steve Jobs. He was a businessman who had an idea that he wanted to make happen, as he saw passionately he made the idea come through and it became a success throughout his eyes. Similar to what we’ve been doing in English class. We produced a book (children’s book) and we wanted it published, so we had to write a query letter to publishers to publish our book. As we envisioned it, we have driven it to completion as well. - Emelyn Hernandez, grade 10

Ms. Hudson, English 10 CHILDREN’S BOOK BUSINESS PLAN By Rhys Lewis, Jason Salazar, Nancy Gonzalez, Leodan Guevara ● Story Overview Friendship, the little boy teams up with the leprechaun to help find the gold ● Business Environment The boy is young and he's from a totally different country so at one point he doesn't really understand the leprechaun, and so since he from a different culture the kid and other readers are learning different cultures. ● Story Description Since the leprechaun is Irish and the boy is American he's learning a different culture by teaming up with him. That way kids from different cultures can relate to the child in the story. ● Strategy The way we plan to grow and market our product is we take the book to schools,libraries, and bookstores. Instead of selling one by one we sell in units after the first 100 sold we'll take to profit and buy more books and start buying advertising. After that we will start selling the book digital. ● Financial Review We're on a budget of 350 dollars to make the books. We need about 100 copies to start off. Each book would take about 3.50 dollars to make and we'd sale it for 6 dollars. ● Action Plan What we can do first is to write the book and make a business plan. Then go to talk to the publisher and pay them to get our book published. Next sale them on the bookstores. What our goal would be is to get the books to be in children school for the children can read the wonders of the kid and the leprechaun. Essential Question: What components of your children's book will make it successful? What it takes to run a business! To some people they make think it's hard but if you really put your mind to it and just have the right guidance you would be able to accomplish it. Like publishing a book, it takes a lot of steps to make your book reach that breaking point, that's why some people normally hire publishers to do that kinda stuff for them .Overall there are a lot of goals you half to reach to publishing a book from marketing to advertisement. Certain goals like being able to sell the book can be achieved by advertising at schools. New authors have to find the buyer because people usually try to find the books of an author they already bought content from. New authors could go to schools and advertise their content. Another way to get people interested in our content is by giving out a background of ourselves & a little preview of our book. Our best bet is to go out to a school and read a portion of the book and try to get the staff & parents to buy the book.
