Connetquot High School Business Honor Society students visited with fifth grade students at the Edith L. Slocum Elementary School to share tips on how to make sensible financial choices.
Through hands-on activities and games, students learned a practical approach to possibly starting a business and making smart decisions about managing money. The High School Heroes program is a service-learning project sponsored by Junior Achievement USA that enables high school students to become role models for elementary students.
These “heroes” teach and empower elementary students using lessons centered around work readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Connetquot Business Honor Society advisers Andrea Pizzimenti and Gina Senft bring the high school students to each of Connetquot’s elementary schools over the course of the year.
