Making a Change PBL

When we return from Thanksgiving Break, we will start our Making a Change PBL! This PBL is a combination of financial literacy skills and service learning - our students will create a budget and shop for a family in need.

In order for this PBL to be successful, we need help! If you, or anyone (or business!) that you know of might like to donate, please ask your teacher for a letter to give out to businesses or others who may donate. Our students rely on donations to make this project successful and give back to our community.

Idiom of the Week

To "talk turkey" means to talk about the task or business seriously.


"It's time to talk turkey and stop messing around."
