(Download Adobe Acrobat Reader to view or print PDF)



February 10th-13th, all 8th Grade students will be attending the mandatory Junior Achievement Finance Park field trip. At this event, the students will be using budgeting and financial skills that will be taught in class prior to the field trip with the end goal of the student being able to develop and obtain skills that will benefit their financial knowledge for the rest of their lives.


Parent volunteers are needed to chaperone the field trip. It is in the best interest of the student’s experience to have as many parent volunteers as possible to attend to help the students in this journey. Junior Achievement requests that we have 1 chaperone per 6 students. JA also requests we supply them with the number of chaperones by January 14th. Your time is requested from 9:30am-2:00pm. The bonus for the students for your volunteering efforts is that they are allowed to leave the field trip with you at 2:00pm and not be required to return to campus. This is a beneficial bonus for both the parent and the student.


If you are interested in volunteering for this field trip, please contact Mr. Battaglia at Volunteers must be a Broward County Public Schools approved volunteer and register with Junior Achievement. To become a BCPS approved volunteer please go to<Community<Volunteers.
