We are so fortunate the Junior Achievement program brings quality volunteers from the community into our classroom to deliver proven, hands-on programming on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship that inspires students to understand the opportunities provided by education. Our teachers report that students who participate in JA have a better understanding of how the real world operates and make better connections about what is learned in the classroom to the outside world. Many thanks to our St. Paul’s Volunteers: K-Jim Atty; 1st-Ty Burke; 2nd-Jim Atty; 3rd-Brittany Dierks; 4th-Caleb Staack; 5th-Jim Mitchell; 6th-Sue Rand.
As you know, some of our school’s mission work is through gathering offering to help other nonprofit organizations. I just received an e-mail from Ed Scharlau and we are so proud to announce that our mission work for Water to Thrive continues to grow. With the collections that were associated with St. Paul’s we raised over $10,000, for not just one, but TWO wells to help our friends in Africa! We are so proud and thankful to make that announcement. This Trimester, our offering collection is going to EWALU to help them purchase a van! We are hoping to raise $1200 and we are close to half-way there—with just a handful of services to go! Please help your child remember their little brown envelopes filled with change! Patrons can also donate through our online giving by clicking HERE. Thanks for helping your child understand the work of mission ministry!
