Emily, along with the rest of the 5th graders at her school, got to attend JA Biztown for a day recently. Emily was "employed" at Chase Bank, and had to type in kids' account numbers (each child was assign an account number for the day, so they could deposit their paychecks and withdraw "money" to purchase items from the different shops), verify names, etc. She said it was a lot of work, but she had fun doing it!
She was voted by the other Chase Bank employees to read their prepared "commercial" on the Biztown Q13 News. (She's in the middle)
Sounded like a very neat experience for all the kids! I didn't attend (didn't have the time to attend any of the training sessions the volunteers had to attend), but I had some friends who volunteered and snapped these photos of Emily.
