    Posted by Debra Dearborn at 5/31/2013 11:15:00 AM
    By all accounts the spring Finance Fair held on Tuesday, May 29th in the B.C.S. Jr. High Gymnasium and presented by the Principles of Finance classes was an informative and interesting evening. 

    Students sporting professional dress shared the knowledge they gained through the program and their personal research with members of the Academy Board, parents, staff and students. 

    Topics ranged from preparedness for college, credit scores, insurance and savings plans, as well as ways to save money among others.  The presenters recieved feedback from attendees at the end of the evening through the use of critiques provided by the guests.  According to Teacher, Karin Menz, "The Academy of Finance Advisory Board and the community gave kudos to our students last night for a job well done."

Jr./Sr. High Cafeteria.   The response from the community was overwhelmingly positive.  Comments from attendees include: 
    "It was great having the opportunity to see the students at your Finance Academy last week. How impressive they all were. Your School, Administration, Teachers, and Students should be proud of the accomplishments you all have achieved."
     
    "My wife was most impressed (and it takes a lot to impress her) with last night's Finance Fair. My compliments to those that have this program up and running.  I am looking forward to the future."
     
    The program, which was hosted by 9th grade students of the Principles of Finance classes,  Presented topics that included: Budgets, SMART Goals, Credit, Debt, Credit Reports, Insurance, Credit Cards, Loans, Cash Flow, and Financial Job Skills.

    Students researched and prepared presentations on their specific topics, as well as discussing the fine points of their topics with staff, community members and business partners.  They also applied the lessons they have been learning in class about the importance of proper dress and personal presentation.  Jr./Sr. High School Principal Barbara Converso states, "
    I was most impressed with the "professionalism" displayed by the students."   Please enjoy the photo gallery of the event:
