Biz Town 2017

“JA BizTown is a community unlike any other; one where kids take charge by running businesses, earning paychecks, voting in elections and donating to philanthropy. This unique program designed for 4th-6th grades, engages students in the roles of workers and consumers in a series of classroom lessons that culminates in a visit to our fully-interactive simulated town. Students learn entrepreneurial and personal finance skills while they work and shop in their own vibrant community. Through this experiential learning process, students develop a strong understanding of the relationship between what they learn in school and their successful participation in our global economy.”

SJV students in 4th-6th grade are lead by Mrs. Raybourne and Mrs. Ferrell in this exciting opportunity!

 

 

Lenten Pretzels for Sale

Lenten Pretzels

Pretzels are traditional Lenten food because they don’t contain any of the ingredients that were forbidden during Lent. In the Middle Ages, pretzels were the food of the poor during Lent; now they’re a popular food. Their shape reminds us of praying arms. In fact, the word pretzel comes from a Latin word meaning folded arms.

Third grade will be incorporating this Lenten practice into our classroom. The students will be making pretzels to sell to students during snack time.

What: Third Grade is selling Pretzels

When: March 15, 2017

Where: SJV

How Much: $0.50/pretzel or 3/$1.00

Proceeds: Catholic Charities Refugee Program

For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you visited Me.’…
