- This year students are experiencing an economy first hand. Classmates have important jobs such as maintaining our trail cameras, managing a worm farm for composting, running a school-wide post office, and operating a business of growing sprouts and basil to sell. Students are paid classroom "dollars" for these jobs and from their funds, purchase needed supplies and class celebrations. The sprouts/basil business provides real dollars which support two children in Cambodia through World Vision. We are learning many real world job skills as well as experiencing a meaningful context for much of our academic work. Monthly nature days in local parks take science study to a whole new level. We are learning that we can do hard things, and that doing so is satisfying. We are blessed to have a joyful community.
- Our class has also been developing a friendship with several residents at Sedgwick Heights where we visit on a monthly basis to play games and make crafts. Recently, the staff of Interfaith Works interviewed Mrs. Kaiser about the partnership.
