Sixth-Grade Learning Opportunities
JA BizTown - All sixth-grade students experience “Life as an adult” for one day at the Junior Achievement facility in York. Economic, government, and teamwork principles are taught as students have jobs, earn paychecks, keep an accurate record of spending, and enjoy the day as a BizTown citizen. There is no cost to students.
Canoe trips - All sixth-grade students have an opportunity to participate in a one day canoe trip during the fall or spring. This is sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and allows our students to meet Pennsylvania water quality standards found in the science curriculum. $5 is the cost to students for this activity.
Baltimore - All sixth-grade students are invited to attend the annual trip to Baltimore. The National Aquarium and Camden Yards are two of the sites visited during this extended day trip. The day is educational and entertaining. Students raise money by fundraising. Cost per student ranges from $50 - $60.
