Lately at Knoch, the students have been selling cookie dough to raise money for prom. We need to raise about $20,000 to cover all of the expenses. My best friend Riley and I are participating in this fundraiser. Our goal is to sell ten tubs of cookie dough before February 18th to ensure that we have a great prom. Sounds easy enough, but we needed customers and fast. So, Riley and I decided to try to sell cookie dough to the teachers in the middle school. We attempted to sell cookie dough to Mr. Walters, Mr. Voltz and Mrs. Kodrich.
The First Teacher we saw was Mr. Walters. Mr. Walters is a computer teacher in the middle school and teaches grades 6-9. He was enthusiastic to see us so we chatted with him a while. He told us that he had heard about the cookie dough sale and he thought it was a good idea. He continued to tell us that he thought it was smart to start raising money early. Alas, he said he didn’t want to buy any because he didn’t like cookie dough, so Riley and I vowed to go to his room every day until he agreed to buy cookie dough. The next time we went to his room he wasn’t as happy. He told us that he didn’t want us going to his room every day and to stop, so we did.
Next, we went to Mr. Voltz’s room. The students in his class were out of control and a visit from us brightened his day. The biggest grin came upon his face. Mr. Voltz told us that he too had heard about the fundraiser. We asked if we could solicit our cookie dough to his students and he agreed. None of his students even seemed interested in buying our cookie dough. Some of the students made fake offers but weren’t serious. When his students declined we turned to him, he said that his kids would love it but his wife wouldn’t want him buying something so fattening. We tried every persuasive method we could think of but he still wouldn’t buy any. Even my persuasive charm isn’t enough for some people.
Lastly we went to Mrs. Kodrich’s room....
