On Thursday, December 7, 2017, students from Seton-LaSalle High School came to Saint Elizabeth to conduct economic lessons through the Junior Achievement (JA) program. The Seton students split into pairs and went into the Kindergarten through eighth grade classes to teach the students about their neighborhoods and how the economy works. The Junior Achievement website says, "JA of Western Pennsylvania's volunteer-delivered, kindergarten-12th grade programs foster workforce development, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students in our community to dream big and reach their potential." On December 19, the students of Saint Elizabeth will have a Jeans for JA Day on which they will pay $1.00 to dress down. This money is then donated to JA to help with the wonderful work that they do educating children and providing high school scholarships. Our eighth grade students who will attend a Catholic high school will be able to apply for the Cardinal Donald Wuerl Scholarship which will provide $3,000 for high school tuition.
