“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” –Acts 20:35
Central Valley Christian
Academy Senior Class
Donates Class Trip Funds
At Central Valley Christian Academy in Ceres, Calif., the senior class of 2020 realized that because of Covid-19, their class trip would be canceled along with their graduation. Among all the things that these seniors are missing out on, they didn’t miss an opportunity to be generous and thoughtful. They voted to use their class trip funds to help others in their class pay down the balance on their school bill and they set up two scholarships of $1,000.00 each to help two of next years’ seniors with tuition. What an awesome way to demonstrate Christ’s love to their fellow students!

Students with Virtual STEM Lab
At Hawaiian Mission Academy’s Ka Lama Iki campus, the 7th grade class had just finished helping to paint the STEM lab after it had been flooded, when on-campus learning was cancelled. The principal and staff wanted to create a science lesson for the students each week—and host it from the freshly painted lab. They created interactive videos for all of the students to participate in, using materials they found around their homes. They’ve made elephant toothpaste, bouncy balls, and even dancing milk.
