Record Observer - - School -

STEVENSVILLE — On April 29, fifth­graders at Light­house Christian Academy hosted a Mar­ket Day for stu­dents in kinder­garten through eighth grade. As part of the fifth­graders’ study of the In­dus­trial Rev­o­lu­tion and Roar­ing Twen­ties, each fifth-grader ap­plied what they had learned to cre­ate, pro­to­type, ad­ver­tise, and sell a prod­uct.

All prod­ucts pro­duced by the fifth-graders were priced at less than two dol­lars and gave the lower school stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to prac­tice count­ing money in a real and prac­ti­cal way. Prof­its from Mar­ket Day to­taled a lit­tle over $300. The pro­ceeds raised were do­nated to the non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion Sa­mar­i­tan’s Purse, which reaches de­vel­op­ing vil­lages through­out the world with the Gospel by pro­vid­ing ne­ces­si­ties like food, wa­ter, and shel­ter. The class se­lected var­i­ous farm an­i­mals, medicine, clean wa­ter, and more to send to a vil­lage in need.

Founded in 2001, Light­house Christian Academy is a K-8 Clas­si­cal Christian school on Kent Is­land. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www. lca­cademy.org
