Reality Store for 8th Graders
8th grade students missed Reality Store as 7th graders due to COVID so they will have a chance to experience it this year. This is a way for students to experience what it is to be an adult with bills and responsibilities. Students will select a job based on their GPA. They will then receive a salary and checkbook to use to pay their way through a month’s living expenses; their first stop being the IRS. By the end, we hope they will have a little appreciation for what you as their parents have to cover to make sure they are taken care of financially.
