Owner, Katie Pickard, Visits Rocky River Middle School

Katie Pickard, owner of Rocky River’s Paper Trails, visited RRMS yesterday in Matt England’s 8th grade Technology INC class where students create a mock company to try to sell a product or service.  The students design the store layout, the product, a website to advertise, a radio commercial, and stationery including a business card.  Katie discussed with the class the importance of color, design, and leaving a good first impression.  She brought in many “real world” samples and ideas to make this a valuable and meaningful experience for the students.  Katie not only helped the students with their designs, but also offered to print the students’ final business cards in her shop!
