We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r Students at Mt. Nebo Junior High got a little dose of “reality” on January 22 as they participated in Reality Town. This fun, hands-on activity incorporated real-life scenarios and taught students the importance of budgeting, fiscal responsibility and getting an education. It was fun to see the reactions of students when they found out just how expensive real life can be!

CTE teacher, Donna Baguley, stated, “Overall the Reality Town experience gives the students an opportunity to see what life could be like when they are 30 years old. The student’s career is based on their GPA and the career path they are interested in. There are 18 businesses that the students are required to visit; such as housing, transportation, groceries, clothing and so on. The students also have the opportunity to visit five optional businesses. The students may need to learn about finance, counseling or a chance to get a second job if they run out of money.”

Students collaborate after Reality Town to review and discuss their choices and consequences. This learning experience really opens the students’ eyes about adulthood.

Mt. Nebo Junior thanks everyone who made this event possible.
