SCA students hit the track in fundraiser
|Students and teachers at Sisters Christian Academy raised funds with their annual walk/jog-a-thon last week.|
Sisters Christian Academy students took advantage of a weather window to get outdoors and hit the track in the school's annual walk/jog-a-thon fundraiser.
"Our tuition is purposely kept low so that every student essentially receives a scholarship," explained school Principal Cheryl Peterson. "Fundraising events that build community, partnerships with parents, friendships and fun are a key piece of our lower tuition."
Students solicit pledges (either a set amount or on a per-lap basis) and then they all run for an hour.
"Teachers do the same," Peterson said. "Then everyone is invited back to the school for a fun lunch of hot dogs or pulled-pork sandwiches. "
The food is donated by local stores and vendors.
"We were so blessed to have our window of good weather on Friday right during our WJAT," said Peterson. "Answered prayer."
Sisters Christian Academy is a Christian school serving students and their families from preschool through 8th grade. SCA teaches all subjects from a Biblical point of view, while following a classical model in the development of its program. A classical model teaches a core of knowledge in a way that challenges the student's thinking, going beyond the assimilation of facts to teach values, truth, decision-making, critical-thinking skills, and to impart wisdom.
