Next week the postcard project is due (80%). (May 8th) Many students have already turned it in and their grades have been posted. There is on daily work assignment due on Friday as well (20%). If the students have already completed the postcard, then they will only have the one assignment for the week.
I appreciate all the students who are doing their work. I know this is not an easy task for the students. If a student is having difficulty with anything, please have them contact me, and I will help them through the process. If students have any missing work they will have until May 21st to turn it in with no penalty.
I will have the entire weeks assignments posted on Friday by 3:00 pm. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

The New Consumer Economics & Money Management Wise Generation
“I learned how your identity can be taken and how to prevent that from happening. I also learned how to manage your money and your time. In the future this information will help me keep money for the most important stuff. From this lessoned learned everything that I need to know about having savings and checking’s accounts and debit/credit cards because I will need those for my money in the future. I also learned how to balance a checkbook and how to write a check. Which if I will need to know how to do in the future. Thanks for teaching me all these things some of it was easy and some of it was hard. I found some of these things very interesting. I really love working with numbers.” Aliya Smith
