Pictures From Junior Achievement Day

Thank you to all the parent volunteers and UCONN student volunteers who brought the Junior Achievement program to Saint James School today.

Junior Achievement is an opportunity for our K-8th grade students to learn about basic concepts of business and economics at an age-appropriate level.  Each grade has a specific “curriculum” the facilitators present in addition to bringing their own real-life experiences into the discussion.

It’s a fun day that ties in concepts like money management, good communication skills, and entrepreneurship as well as economic concepts and facts about the working world.

Below are pictures from several of the classrooms:
