Lower School

We were disappointed that we could not hold our annual Pumpkin Patch this year, but God had another plan. The Lower School decided to bless elderly people residing in assisted living homes with “Encouragement Pumpkins.” The younger students decorated them, and older students added a Bible verse and a word of encouragement. These pumpkins have been placed in “quarantine,” and then student council officers will have the privilege of delivering them through a partnership with a local ministry, Heart2Heart Outreach. What a gift it will be for us to encourage our elderly neighbors with their own pumpkin patch! We are...

The fifth-grade students became citizens of BizTown on Wednesday, March 11, when they visited Junior Achievement’s facility in Coconut Creek. This realistic setting inspires students to apply what they have learned about community and economy, work readiness, financial literacy, and business management. While at the JA BizTown facility, each student assumed a job. Then, they produced and sold products and received a paycheck. They also worked on a business team, repaid business loans, shopped, and managed a personal bank account. Throughout the program, students explored and enhanced their understanding of free enterprise. They used critical thinking skills to learn about key...
