A note from Mr. Holguin

Circle Middle School Header

The College & Career Ready Program will be hosting a Reality U event on March 28 th for all sophomores and 8th graders. 8th graders will be transported to Circle High School to participate in one of two sessions of Reality U. Reality U is an exercise that helps youth understand some of the “realities” involved in preparing for an employable future and adulthood. The goals of Reality U are to show teens that their performance in school today will affect their future, and give teens a chance to learn and practice personal finance skills in a fun way.

Community volunteers will help staff booths for this event. The stations students will interact with are as follows: Utility, Insurance, student loan, emergency fund, investment, housing, food, clothes, hair, and unexpected life events.

We are really excited about the opportunity to bring this event to our students! If you would like to learn more about Reality U, visit www.realityu.org. 8th graders will miss morning classes to attend this event.
