Finance Park Volunteers Needed

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

 

Seventh-grade students will be participating in a real-life finance simulation as a culmination of the Junior Achievement (JA) Finance Park unit that they will complete in their World Studies class.  Students will be given a role-play scenario, which they must use to work out a budget for themselves. 

During our field trip to Finance Park located at Edison High School in Wheaton, we are in need of volunteers to assist in the running of the simulation.  Ms. Chichester's classes will attend on Thursday, March 16th.  Mr. Blanc's classes will attend on Friday, March 17th.  The hours are from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm.  Volunteers may commit to one or both days. Volunteers will arrive at Junior Achievement Finance Park 1 hour before the arrival of students for training by Junior Achievement staff.  ​We would like to have a ratio of 1 adult for every 6 students (about 17-20 volunteers total each day). You do not need to be the parent or guardian of a seventh-grade student to attend.  If you are interested in chaperoning and/or have questions, please contact the teachers listed below.
