The fifth‐grade students became citizens of BizTown on Wednesday 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 economic concepts. This hands‐on learning experience is sure to impact our fifth‐grade students and prepare them further for their futures.

The Lions’ Parent Association (LPA) actively supports the mission of the school. One of the six teams that make up the LPA is the Prayer and Care Team. Their purpose is to provide encouragement and support to families experiencing a hardship. In addition, one goal they have this year for WA is to encourage our community in the healthy habit of prayer.
The Prayer and Care Team created a prayer calendar covering the key areas of our school along with Scripture. You can download the March calendar here as a guide to lift up WA.
