A Beautiful Co-Op
Our co-op just got healthier by contributing to the process of feeding the hungry! Ten family units, or 25 children and parents, met at The Center’s organic community garden in Vancouver, WA. They came together to finish a garden-stake service project they began earlier in the month. The students engaged in experiential learning by getting their hands dirty (and painted)! And possibly the best thing they gained was a truly holistic approach to learning, which means that students learned with their parents–not detached from them. At this stage of the student’s lives, the family unit–as one of the most important assets for personal and social success–is essential for learning. That’s why it’s imperative to invest in families as the structure of education! Thank you Nikki Smith for the collaborate work on the stake idea. Thank you parents for your dedication to your children. Do keep praying for and coming together to make Highest Education the best family discipleship ministry and school co-op it can be!
