Junior Achievement Day

Under the auspices of the Junior Achievement program, students from Bishop Canevin High School spent the day at St. Philip School teaching the children about Economics in its various forms. Lessons were presented at all grade levels and included topics such as money use in Kindergarten, business strategies in 5th grade, communications and transportation in 6th grade. The children enjoyed being taught by students just a little older than themselves and related well to this style of learning. JA Worldwide is a partnership between the business community, educators and volunteers — all working together to inspire young people to dream big and reach their potential.  JA’s hands-on, experiential programs teach the key concepts of work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy to young people all over the world. The Bishop Canevin students train and present this event yearly and seemed to really enjoy being teachers for the day. The students  love to see SPS graduates  come back as instructors. The local JA program  and Bishop Canevin offer scholarships to 8th graders who have attended Catholic School and participated in the JA program. For more Pictures , Click here
