Cause of the Mondays - Journey Charter School

  • Vines & Rushes Winery is hosting Cause of the Mondays Monday from 4 to 8 p.m. and donating 25% of food sales and all cash donations received to Journey Charter School.

Journey Charter School is a Ripon Area School District charter school which offers project-based learning to students in grades K-2. Students explore real world problems while incorporating math and reading skills with both grade level and multi-aged peers. Journey Charter School uses a hands-on approach to learning which helps students develop the life-long skills of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.

  • As part of this hand-on approach students connect with the community by visiting residents’ homes, inviting community experts into our school, and participating in a variety of off-site learning opportunities. Proceeds will be used to fund these student learning opportunities and educational experiences.

“Please join us for a night of delicious pizza at the winery to support a great cause and community,” the winery said on its website. “Dine in, curbside and carryout available.”
