LifeWise Academy CrooksvilleProject led by LifeWise Academy Crooksville
About the project.
LifeWise Academy is a Released Time Religious Instruction (RTRI) program which provides Bible based character education to public school students during school hours with parent permission. LifeWise Crooksville is working to bring this program to Crooksville Exempted Village School. They hope to bring peace, love, understanding, and hope through Gospel based, character focused education to students grade K-4. The goal is that this education will help build strong foundations for our community by teaching students about caring, service, reliability, humbleness, and more. The hope is to strengthen our community through our youth. This education is rotated through the curriculum like other specials such as art, music, and gym.
One of the requirements to be lawful is that the program is done off of school grounds. LifeWise Crooksville is lucky to have adjacent and within walking distance of the school, United Methodist Church, where the classrooms will be held.
Funding will support the materials needed to start the program such as participation fees, materials, and instruction.
