Fiesta de la Primavera!
8th Grade Financial Reality Fair!
Minutos de Sra. Hutchins!
Hello Fronteras Families!
Thank you to all the parent and staff volunteers who helped make the 5th through 8th grade Fiesta de la Primavera a HUGE success! Check out the fun photos throughout the newsletter!
On Thursday, our 8th grade students participated in a Financial Reality Fair hosted by Matanuska Valley Federal Credit Union. This fair was a fun, hands-on way for students to learn about managing personal finances. Students approach the fair as if they had graduated from college, and have nothing – no car, no residence, no cell phone, etc. Students are provided with a budget worksheet that includes a fictitious future life scenario and a monthly salary of a position in the career of their choice; some have a spouse that contribute to their income, some have children and other obligations such as student loans and credit card debt. Students complete the budget worksheet line by line according to their vision of their future life. They go through life, stopping by tables to purchase an apartment or home, a vehicle, cell phone plan, utilities, insurance, groceries, personal needs/hair care, fitness, clothing, fun activities and incidentals. Along the way there are many temptations for additional spending, and students must learn to balance their wants and needs to stay within their income. In addition, they must consider their credit score for better purchasing power. The student’s goal is to stay within budget. Once they budgeted for their expenses, they met with a financial advisor to review and adjust. Our students received rave reviews from the MVFCU folks I visited with afterward. Our students fully engaged in the activity and were thoughtful in their questions and decisions. This was so informative and enjoyable, we’ve already scheduled for next year.
If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to receive instruction in Spanish, please join us every Wednesday afternoon in Sra. Rosa Rivera’s classroom from 3:00-3:30pm to learn in and be immersed in the target language! It is a super fun way to practice conjugating verbs and conversations with one another.
