What is the store?
The LMA Student Store is a significant part of Lake Michigan Academy’s Business curriculum. As part of the class, students are expected to manage all aspects of the business. They are involved in bookkeeping, monitoring and ordering inventory, developing the product line, setting prices, accurately maintaining the in-house credit lines, and more. The goal of the store is to provide students with real-world experience while developing an understanding of the math that is involved behind the scenes in a business.
What does the store offer?
The LMA Student Store offers a large variety of reasonably-priced snack foods, beverages (available at both the store counter and vending machines), school supplies, and spirit wear (shirts, hats, bags). You may view our full menu here.
Do you offer healthy options?
Much of the LMA Student Store's food is traditional snack foods (cookies, crackers, trail mix, beef jerky, etc.). The LMA Student Store strives to find healthy, affordable products to offer Lake Michigan Academy's students. As these products become available, they are added to the store inventory.
When is the store open?
The LMA Student Store is open during homeroom for those students who leave for other programs in the afternoon. The store is also open from 11:45 AM until 12:05 PM to serve all full-time students during their lunch hour.
How do students make purchases?
Students can make purchases using their Grub Card.
Can limits be placed on what a student can buy at the store?
Unfortunately, there is no effective (affordable) way for the LMA Student Store to limit what a student can buy from the store. However, students will only be able to make purchases if they have money available on their Grub Card. In addition, restrictions can be put in place that prevents a student from making any purchases at the store.
How is money added to student accounts?
There are several ways to reload to a student's Grub Card.
How are parents notified when an account is out of money?
Student accounts are processed twice each week. After accounts have been processed, parents and students will receive an email that contains a link. Clicking on this link will allow them to see the current status of their account.
Please contact the LMA Student Store with any additional questions or concerns that you may have.
