This year, our 6th grade class will participate in an amazing Junior Achievement program called JA BizTown. JA BizTown encompasses important elements of community and economy, work readiness, financial literacy, and business management. As part of this Junior Achievement program, they will spend the day at the JA BizTown site in Chesterfield, Missouri (near Boone’s Crossing), on Tuesday, April 10. This on-site visit will provide the students with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in a realistic setting. Each student will assume a job, produce and/or sell products, receive a paycheck, work on a business team, repay business loans, shop, and manage a personal bank account. It is sure to be a great experience!

The class will be traveling to Chesterfield by bus with the 6th grades from St. Peter and St. Francis Schools. Our portion of the cost is $540. We are seeking sponsors or donations to help us pay for the bus. So far, we have received $100. If anyone would like to help sponsor the trip or give a donation toward the cost of the busing, please contact Jamie Parrott, the 6th grade teacher, or Sue Kelley, principal. Thank you!
