In Spring of 2014, Kelly Dudley, 5th grade teacher at Doyle Elementary, requested a Teacher Grant for purchase of a JA BizTown curriculum and hands-on field trip. Due to the success of this program we worked with JA BizTown to include a second UC elementary school in their program for the 2014-2015 school year. This academic year, all 5th graders at Doyle and Spreckels will be attending JA BizTown! We hope to have all three elementary schools participating next school year as the program has a wait-list.
“The students walked away learning some amazing and important life-skills. I’m sure that they will always regard their experience at JA BizTown as their first introduction to the ‘real’ working world! Thank you VERY much EdUCate! for funding this awesome educational program and trip for our 5th graders again this year!” – Kelly Dudley, Doyle Elementary. Read more.
