High School Business Courses
Mrs. Renay Meissner’s ACE Personal Finance class at the High School has been participating in the H&R Block Budget Challenge since February 9th, which will end on April 20th. As stated in the challenge, “Each student gets a regular paycheck, a checking account, a 401(k) savings account and bills to pay throughout the simulation.” Through this challenge, students become “Read-World Ready and tackle financial life as an adult”. At the end of the challenge, the top 5 students with the highest overall Read-World Ready scores receive a $20,000 scholarship! Currently, there are 53, 595 players in this challenge. As of today, Kassidy Egan is ranked 20th, having earning herself the 15th spot a few days ago. Other students are close behind in the 32nd range!
