I want all of my students and their parents to know that I will be out the week of October 4th. I am having hip replacement surgery and hope to be back the week after Fall Break. I will continue to have work for the students that is as close to what they would be doing with me as possible. Thank you all in advance for cooperating with the sub. Substitute teaching is a difficult task, and anything you can do to make the job easier is greatly appreciated.

Tuesday we will learn how to build a “Zero-Based Budget”. This budget is one in which all incoming money is accounted for every month. Students will work on creating a budget for themselves now and in the future. They will learn to track expenses and discuss making budget a habit.

We have been discussing economic resources and systems. We will review that information and have a test over Unit 2 on Tuesday. Unit 3 will consist of a vocabulary assignment discussing economic activity in a changing world and current events. There will be a brief quiz over that material. Unit 4 will revolve around business ethics and social responsibility.

Students are working with income and creating a budget. We will discuss the importance of saving early and creating positive financial habits. We will briefly discuss the “Rule of 72”, investing, and virtual currency.

Classes will continue discussions on Mental Health, including completing notes. Students will experience ways to calm themselves and suggestions for helping with stresses. Our test over Mental Health will be Wednesday or Thursday, and we will begin a unit on Social Health.
