Woodside Elementary PTA
Building our 2019-2020 Junior Achievement Team
What is JA? Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization that offers age-appropriate lessons in work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy. Their passion is to ignite the spark in young people to experience and realize the opportunities and realities of work and life in this growing global economy. Each grade's program consists of 5 lessons that range from 30-45 minutes each. Lessons can be done in 5 seperate sessions or combined to maximize a team member's time. Lessons come in grade-level 'kits' and include all materials needed, including a very detailed guide for helpers. Docents are encouraged to sign up for their student's class and will work directly with their teacher on when to schedule these lessons.
No experience necessary! PTA offers "Train-the-Trainer" sessions, providing Docents with supplies, lessons plans and instructional knowledge. This program is so easy to present, with full color materials and fun and engaging games, songs and activities. It's another fun way to help in your student's classroom and interact with their friends!
This is an EASY and FUN way to support our teachers, students and PTA!
