Reality Store and Career Day:
November 14th eighth graders got the opportunity to participate in a Reality Store. This gave students an important glimpse of the future, especially the financial balance and challenges they will face as adults. Students have been assigned a career and a paycheck based on their career interest. They went through different stations (food, housing, clothing, insurance, etc.) and “purchased” things that all adults have to sustain themselves in life. The Reality Store will help students become aware of the need to set goals for themselves and make wise decisions in regards to career choices and their educational attainment. Reality Store has been known to be the most enlightening shopping trip students will ever take.
