7th Grade Free Field Trip to Junior Achievement Finance Park

  • This year, 7th grade World Studies students at Gaithersburg will participate in an exciting program sponsored by MCPS known as Junior Achievement Finance Park.

  • This program will provide our students with the opportunity to actively participate in lessons over the next few weeks that will get them thinking about different ways to look at money so that they ultimately have a much more thorough understanding of concepts like careers, income, taxes, savings, managing risk, debit vs. credit, budgeting, and much more!

  • The culminating activity of the JA Finance program is for students to participate in a simulation at the JA Finance Park facility at Thomas Edison High School. During this experience, students must apply the financial knowledge they’ve acquired in their World Studies classes to successfully navigate the life situation they are provided.

  • Students will attend on either January 14th or January 15th depending on their World Studies teacher. The field trip permission slip can be found in the GMS Webpage.

  • 7th graders, Please be sure to turn in your Junior Achievement field trip permission slip to your World Studies Teacher.
