I am excited to start a new program with the students called JA (Junior Achievement) Biztown. This is a 12 lesson course that culminates with a field trip where the students start and run businesses out at the Junior Achievement building in Chesterfield.
This field trip will be on February 2, 2018. We will be in need of parent volunteers who are willing to help with the businesses we are assigned to run. More information to come, but once I know what businesses we are assigned, I will be able to send more detailed information. But if that sounds like something you (parents) may be interested in, mark your calendars and watch for more information. .
This is why some students needed their address, they had to apply for a bank account this week.
2 WEEKS!!! That is how long students have to complete their 4 hours of service AND the write up in Google Classroom. I will update that in Educate (it is a 50 point grade in Discipleship) this weekend.
Envelopes were distributed to the students today (Friday) for Santa’s Workshop next week. This is a place for students to purchase (if they want) presents for family members. The store will be here on Tuesday and Wednesday. Students will go as a class (those who bring money) one day.
ANOTHER FIELD TRIP!!!
Next Thursday, Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Reck-Meyer and I will take the 5th grade to the elementary campus to perform our class service project. We will go after lunch and return around 2:30.
Self pace has a test Monday. Then they will continue with classes as normal.
Mr. Akerson pace will be ready for a test toward the end of the week.
Both groups will have some math work related to JA Biztown next week as well.
This week we started looking at the prophecies of Jesus. Students will have a project related to this coming next week.
This week we looked at the respect John showed in the story of John baptizes Jesus.
Next week we’ll look at Jesus’ healings, teachings, and prayers.
