9th Grade: *Plan for College and Career Readiness Coming March 2018 9th Grade Plan for College and Career Readiness meetings are a chance for parents and students to talk to a counselor about their 4 year high school plan to make sure they are on track for graduation from high school. This meeting will also include assistance in picking classes for 10th grade. *Reality Town November 9, 2017 Reality Town is a realistic financial simulation in which our 9th grade students are given an occupation, income and family (on paper). Students try to work within their income (assigned based on grade-point average) and experience the challenge of paying one month's worth of bills on that income. Through this simulation they gain a greater appreciation for what they will experience as adults. Reality Town teaches students about the importance of living within their income and differentiating between "needs" and "wants", as well as the value of education. Volunteers interested for next year should contact Jenny Colvin at firstname.lastname@example.org
