WANTED: 7th Grade Parent Volunteers - On Jan. 26-27th, we will facilitate a Reality Store Program for 7th grade students. The students will be given a randomly assigned career with a given salary, single/married and parenting status. They will travel to several tables where they will add expenses to their budget that include utilities, clothing costs, car expenses, housing, and entertainment. It is a great reality check on what YOU do for them every day.
Your job as a volunteer would be to monitor the event, interact with the kids, and guide them throughout the activity. Sometimes I have opened the floor up to any willing parents that want to talk about their own career. It is a great event and the kids remember this one. Thanks for your help! Kathy Knapp
