  • PROVIDENCIA 5th GRADERS DIVE IN JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT PARTNERSHIP

    I am very excited to announce that our class will be starting the Junior Achievement program. The organization has secured an amazing corporate volunteer for our 5 weeks of weekly lessons. Mr. Ho is an Associate CFO at Providence Medical Institute in both Burbank and Torrance. He has experience teaching the program with 5th graders, most recently at Franklin Magnet School. The program 5th grade will use is JA Our Nation. In a nutshell: "Through hands-on classroom activities, students will learn practical information about America's free market system and how it serves as an economic engine for businesses and careers.

    It also introduces the need for entrepreneurial and innovative thinking in a global economy...Businesses also need people with technical skills to support high-growth and high-demand jobs...."
