This morning we hosted the AmPo 8th graders for Reality Check! The students were assigned a job and salary, and then had to complete a month’s worth of budgeting activities. They were required to visit 20 booths and make financial choices for each line in their budget. Once they calculated their totals, they received a PayDay candy bar if money was leftover or a Zero candy bar if they had a negative balance. This was an enlightening event, and more than one student said they wanted to go home and thank their parents. We appreciate the Grady County OSU Extension for volunteering at the booths. This was a great event and we look forward to more in the future!
