Business News

Business Technology, Accounting I, and Keyboarding I will all be participating in the Stock Market Game this year.  Each team will have $100,000 to invest in bonds, mutual funds and stocks.  Throughout the year they will buy and sell to make up their portfolio.  They are participating with other teams throughout the state to see who ends up with a portfolio worth the most.  Students have to research the stock and make the decisions on what to purchase, when and what to sell, and what to keep.  They will also be learning about short selling, diversification, ticker symbols, long positions, mutual funds and bonds.  I hope they enjoy this simulation while learning some valuable lessons.

Junior High students have been creating various projects using the drawing tools in Impress and Paint.  They have created monsters, houses, flags, and various scenes.

Desktop Publishing has been reviewing last year’s book and deciding what changes to make.  We have also been discussing how to set the book up for this year.  They are ready to get on the website and getting starting.  This class will also be videoing various events to submit to Craw-kan to show on their local channel.

Elementary students have been getting used to the computers.  We will be doing Study Island and Typing Web this year.  We will also be using ABCYA, Funbrain, Goofysmart Kids and various other educational sites to enrich their classroom learning.
