JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT (JA) IN A DAY!

Ms. Freiser from Junior Achievement visited us on Thursday!

The students produced donuts (good/product) to sell to consumers.  They earned money for producing the donuts.  Then the tax collector came around and collected some of their earnings to pay community helpers such as police and fire-people.

In addition, students identified occupations and learned how and why they are important to the community.

The afternoon was very fun-filled, hands-on, and interactive!   The entire day was filled with reinforcements from the unit that we just finished!

We can’t thank Ms. Frieser enough for volunteering in our class!  She was so wonderful with the students and the students were thrilled by her enthusiasm!

THANK YOU JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT!
