She gave a speech at the opening town meeting of BizTown.
I had to go through a two hour training just to be able to volunteer with the fifth graders of Alyssa's school at Junior Achievement's BizTown. What a great experience it was! The kids learn how businesses and economies run by becoming citizens and employees of BizTown. There is everything from doctors to lawyers to meter readers. Alyssa got to be the CEO of Best Buy.
Chase bank is by far the busiest place in BizTown.
I think the Mariners Team Store was the most popular retailer. The citizens get to spend BizTown dollars that they have earned from their various jobs. The kids get to keep all of the merchandise they buy. Lys picked up a poster for Caleb.
Parent volunteers don't get to spend their day in same businesses as their kids. (I guess we parents tend to hover too much.) But I was right next door to Best Buy in the restaurant working with my Papa John's crew.
They were a great bunch of kids and our business was profitable, too.
What a fun day and fantastic learning experience!
