(New) Student Achievement with  DECA & Elementary School

Lindsey Sawtelle, a junior at GHS went to the elementary school and taught a lesson on financial literacy. Please see the correspondence below from North Street School regarding the impact that Lindsey had on the students at that school.

Description of Project

DECA students went to the North Street Elementary School on Thursday to teach a lesson to the 2nd and 3rd graders about making financial decisions. Students worked within a predetermined budget to purchase supplies to build a paper gingerbread house. The children had to be careful about how much they spent on items they wanted because they had to make sure they had enough for what they needed like glue!

Email Correspondence from North Street Elementary School

Lindsey

“Thank you so much for coming to the North Street School and teaching our students about financial literacy. The kids talked about you guys all day and loved the lesson. The second grade teachers were impressed with how accurately your lesson followed their economics curriculum and the children could apply what they had learned in a fun activity. One delighted parent of a third grader emailed me after their child came home and said it was okay if he didn't get a lot of christmas presents this year because they learned in school how challenging it is to keep a budget and buy presents; it was a very timely and appropriate lesson that made the children appreciate what they had.”

 

Good luck with your project and let us know if you need help in any way from the North street school.

Thanks ,Emily Mascarin & all  2nd and 3rd grade teachers.
