BizTown Field Trip A Success

The Classical Academy 5th grade students participated in Junior Achievement BizTown in mid-December. Here students spent the day at a simulated town operating banks, managing restaurants, broadcasting news, writing checks, voting, and interacting with the mayor and other business leaders. The field trip helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world. “It was great to get out of the classroom and feel like I was going to a real job,” said 5th-grade student Narek Kalpakgian. The day brings together volunteers, businesses, and the community to create a real-life educational experience.
