The 7th-grade students from Mr. Behnke's Life and Career Skills classes participated in a Money Fair as a capstone project to a financial literacy unit. They showcased their projects on 'Talk With Our Kids About Money' day which is annually the last Wednesday in April. My compliments to the students and Mr. Behnke for a job well done! It was terrific working with you on this project.
