Crosby High School hosted a Financial Reality Fair for high school students yesterday. Students listened to a presentation on what choices they would need to make as they started their first “job” and moved into their first “home.” Students then visited tables set up in the gym where they had to decide how much money to spend on basics such as housing and transportation and extras such as ”night life.” The goal was stay within their budget and hopefully have money left over at the end of the month.
The tables included a spin on the "Wheel of Reality" where students could win (e.g. money from a tag sale) or lose (e.g. replacement cost for a lost cellphone).
