The students came up with their own slogan, "Mountaineer Montessori puts the M in Lemonade" and have really worked together, said parent Gloria Lopez.
"They actually took over," Lopez added.
"He's already asking if we can sell the balloons," Zacks said while laughing and pointing to a student. "It's really showing their work ethic, they've been here since early in the morning and planned all week."
Skyler Brown, 10, said selling lemonade has taught him about hard work.
"It's hard, but you can make a lot of money," Brown said.
Cole Saber sat behind the stand counting a wad of cash.
"I've learned a lot about money, like how to give change back," Saber, 10, said. "My dad has a company and I'll probably work with him one day."
Proceeds from the event will support the school's specialty programs and its "Education for Innovation" scholarship fund, Zacks said.
