Gear-Up, in conjunction with the Magoffin County Extension Office, will be conducting a Reality Store On Wednesday, September 25th, beginning at 8:30 AM. Many of you may be familiar with this event. Eighth and Ninth Grade middle and high school students choose a career they are interested in, and we provide students with the average monthly salary for that career. Students then travel around to various booths and pay monthly bills like insurance, housing, utilities, transportation, etc.
We trust that this will be a worthwhile endeavor that allows students to take a serious look at their futures and teaches lessons in career planning and financial responsibility. We also trust it will provide our students with an overall sense of gratitude as they come face to face with the “reality” that their parents/caretakers face each month.
Ninth Grade will participate from 8:30 AM --11:00 AM
Eighth Grade will participate from 12:30-2:45 PM
