— Under the direction of teacher Kristel Caffrey, the TREPS class of Saint Joseph Regional School is preparing for its upcoming Marketplace, where the students present their businesses and offer their wares for sale.

TREPS is a program for young entrepreneurs and teaches middle school age children the numerous facets of business ownership.

The students study product development, financing, marketing and sales.

The studnets then become the proud owners of their very first business venture.

The public is invited to the event that will take place at the school at 20 Jefferson street in Newton on Thursday June 5 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Some of the items offered will be baked goods, tote bags, hair accessories, window gardens and thermal drink mugs.
