Weeks of financial literacy lessons, job interviews, and discussions about goods and services culminated in a trip to JA Biztown on Monday. Students got a chance to view the world through the lens of the working folks who keep our economy afloat each day. The video titled BizTown 2015 attempts to give you a glimpse inside Biztown to witness the 5th graders of Willamette as they fulfill the mission of JA Biztown: To inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.
I want to send out a major thank you to all those who took the time to volunteer at Biztown. This experience was not possible without the many adults who helped facilitate. I also want to thank all the parents who discussed various lessons, skills, vocabulary, etc. with their children throughout the last several weeks as they prepared for their visit to Biztown.
