A guest from Oxfam Canada explains how they help people in refugee camps all over the world. Her report on the Syrian refugee camps was very meaningful as some Red Oak students are holding a bake sale next month to raise money for the Syrian refugees.
Students calculated measurements and material costs, bought the materials including the billiard balls, which they found on-line, and built it all on their own. It Involved lots of math, geometry and group problem solving! All that was left to do was shoot a game with the School Director!
At the Advent worships we begin to prepare our hearts for the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ’s birth. Each week we light a new candle reminding us of Christ’s light in these darkening days of winter. We remember the peace and joy that come with Christ’s birth and share that with those around us.
Financial literacy and an understanding of economic systems is an important part of the Junior High program. Students create a business, develop business plans, acquire and price their inventory, plan and decorate their shops, negotiate lease and loan agreements and sign them and calculate and remit taxes. On Marketplace day, students sell their wares to the community.
