Miramonte Christian School Helps Young People Grow Strong Decision-Making Skills
In Mr. Koubong’s fourth grade class at Miramonte Christian School in Los Altos, Calif., students run their own “city” called 4th Gradeopolis. Each “citizen” has their own job, currency, expenses, and responsibilities. Students are confronted with everyday problems—and are able to develop the personal skills to deal with them. Mr. Koubong places this great learning experience in the context of Christian values, where kindness, grace, and forgiveness are the guideposts for relationships. The benefits of this focus became very evident recently when students were paying their bills and taxes. One student had made a series of choices that resulted in being unable to meet his responsibilities. Without hesitation, his classmates and fellow citizens took from their own hard-earned money and helped pay their friend’s “4th Gradeopolis debt.” The students were able to experience the joy of selflessly helping one another out—a wonderful example of hearts knit together in the love of Christ!
