On February 20, 2024, all 5th Graders at Humboldt will have the opportunity to attend JA Biztown. JA Biztown is a Junior Achievement program in which students become part of the Free Market Economy. Students will choose occupations, work at these jobs, earn a paycheck, use a debit card, and learn how to manage their money. This is a full-day field trip that is always exciting and a favorite of students.
Humboldt Academy 5th Graders will once again take part in the Humboldt Poetry Slam. The Poetry Slam is a collaboration with Zulu St. Louis, Washington University and Humboldt Academy. During the fall and winter, Washington University students will become mentors to the 5th graders, helping them write poetry and find their voice to present their original poems in front of an audience. The Poetry Slam Competition will take place tentatively on APril 19, 2024. Further information on a concrete date will be forthcoming. Last year's competition was exciting and full of amazing poetry!
