JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM
SOUTH HANOVER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
JA will be a part of each classroom in grades 1-5 for the 2019-2020 school year. We are looking for community volunteers who would be interested and willing to teach JA lessons to our students. All of the materials for these lessons are provided by JA, so you do not need any experience teaching or working with students. There are five lessons, each 30-45 minutes, that you will schedule with the classroom teacher at a mutually convenient time.
