Who am I? What is a worthwhile life?
These are our essential questions for 7th grade. We will explore, discuss, and grapple with our personal responses to these questions throughout the year. As a culmination of our thoughts and studies, we will end the year with a "Worthwhile Life Interview". Each student will sit down with a community member to share his/her ideas on these important questions.

Microloans: Make a difference!
What is a microloan? How can something small make such a big difference? Throughout the year our class will make several loans to entrepreneurs across the globe. When our funds are paid back, we will loan again...now that is some humanitarian magic! In 2008 we started with just $25.00. Since then, we have loaned the equivalent of $2,200.00 by re-lending the money that was returned back to us. We have helped small business owners in 29 countries!
