  • Dinero for the Dominican Republic
    • The second grade class at Faith Christian Academy raises money each month to send to a school in the Dominican Republic. The school, located in La Yaguita, Dominican Republic is a very poor school. The money the second grade class raises goes toward teaching supplies, food, and even tuition for the students in the Dominican Republic. It is an awesome way for the students to show God’s love towards those in need. In January the entire elementary joins in to help raise money. The students have raised over $2,000 for the Dominican Republic.
  • Promethean Smartboard
    • In the second grade we are very blessed to have a Promethean Smartboard. This interactive whiteboard allows learning to become extremely visual. Through teaching videos, interactive games, and flipchart lesson plans, the students are no longer sitting through a lecture. They are now taking part in the entire lesson. The students also use hand held Activotes to help reinforce the lesson. The students are able to type in their answer without fear of embarrassment.
