Volunteers Needed for 8th Grade Reality Store

The 8th Grade Reality Store is badly in need of volunteers!  The Reality Store is a life skills simulation resembling The Game of Life, in which students get to make real-life financial decisions based on a monthly “paycheck” they receive for a selected occupation.  Each of the stations in the Reality Store is staffed by members of the Woodstock area business community who work in the areas represented in the Reality Store, such as realtors, car dealers, insurance agents, and child care providers.  This year’s Reality Store will be held on May 22 at Creekside Middle School from 8:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. (for both Creekside and Northwood students).
