Junior Achievement

In third grade the kids go through a Junior Achievement program at their school. This teaches them the value of money, how to save, how to wisely spend, what credit cards and checkbooks are and how they are used. It also teaches them about business, being an entrepreneur, and reaching for your dreams. Grace's third grade class was blessed with a great mentor in the program and at the end of their work they were visited by the Mayor of Pierre - Laurie Gill. They were able to ask questions and learn about her role in our community. Grace asked "what is the best and worst things about being the Mayor of Pierre." A great opportunity for these learners to see this perspective.
