Teacher helps student during financial literacy exercise.


In our school district, education goes way beyond reading, writing and arithmetic. During our first ever Work and Life Skills Conference, 7th - 9th grade students gathered at Macedonia Middle to practice budgeting, communication and team building. 

To improve their financial literacy, REV Federal Credit Union and teachers helped students complete a monthly budget based off of today's cost of living. Additionally, local business leaders visited to talk to students about the skills they'll need before joining the workforce.

Thank you to all our industry partners for helping us make this possible:

  • REV Federal Credit Union 
  • Law Real Estate
  • Volvo
