Reality Store

Each year the eighth grade class participates in the Reality Store with other eighth graders from Southridge, Forest Park, and Heritage Hills. 

Reality Store is a program that simulates the adult world of work, budgeting, income, expenses, making payments, etc.  Students are assigned a marital status with or without children, a career, and an income.  When students enter the Reality Store the first place they go to is Uncle Sam’s booth.  We all know Uncle Sam takes his share.  Then they go to the bank, where they have to make decisions about savings plans. 

From this point on they can go to the other booths in any order.  They will be making decisions regarding car payments, housing, childcare, food, clothing, entertainment etc.  They must make these decisions based on their monthly income.

This is a wonderful experience for them.  The Reality Store has been very successful each year.

This year the Reality Store will be held at the Dale Community Center (old gym).  We need 15 volunteers to work at the Reality Store this year. Date to be announced soon! If you are interested in helping out and volunteering your time, please contact Camille Berg @ 678-2181 x107.
