Math: We will discuss labor and earning and income. Also, we will look at spending money and how to make sure we have enough to pay for other needed items.


  • We are starting our new financial literacy unit this week. Students will begin learning how to operate a small business. Students should begin thinking about what kind of business they might run. In the next few weeks we will have the opportunity for students to become business owners and sell to their peers. More info. to come!
