*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 Christie Robinson at Christie.Robinson@jordandistrict.org
