Financial Reality Fair Comes to Crosby

Financial Reality Fair 2017High school students in the Waterbury district had the opportunity to participate in The Financial Reality Fair!

A Financial Reality Fair is a 2.5 hour hands-on experience in which students, after identifying their career choice and starting salaries, are provided a budget sheet requiring them to live within their monthly salary while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing and food. Of course, there are many temptations for additional spending, and students must learn to balance their wants and needs to live on their own.

Thank You to all who planned, helped coordinate and volunteered their time for this event!
