What is BizTown?

BizTown is a program from the Junior Achievement Organization that  provides business experience to 5th grade students in a kid friendly way.  The students study the economy and learn to run a business.  The final experience is going to Biztown in San Diego, CA.  The actual building is a two story mall constructed especially for students in which they are the business owners and the consumers. The students participate in an all day event where they are part of a business team and are operating a business.

5th Grade BizTown

Biztown News 2017

We went to Biztown on Monday, November 13, 2017.  Thank you, parent volunteers, for attending and making our experience successful. 

 

Biztown Mayor elections are over and our mayor for this year was Emilia from Mrs. Doncouse's class.  Congratulations!

 

For several weeks our students learned about the different components of a community, business, and economy. They explored what it means to be a citizen of a community. Students learned that as citizens they have rights and responsibilities that contribute to the overall sustainability of our community. They became aware of the various types of businesses that contribute to the community and the different jobs that are available. Students also developed their financial literacy through learning how to complete a deposit ticket, write a check, keep a check register, and compute payroll taxes.

 

The students interviewed for a J.A. Biztown job and were hired for a position at Biztown. See below for job assignments. 

 

The week before the big trip to BizTown, the students worked in their business teams to design a business plan and prepare for their experience at BizTown. It was both hard work and much fun.

 

Thank you to all our parent volunteers.

Multicultural Biztown Bench Auction

The Biztown Bench was donated to the PTA to be auctioned at the Multicultural Festival at the end of the year.  The bench was constructed during the Biztown field trip and delivered to Jefferson School by a parent volunteer.   The bench was then taken to the Frost residence for sanding and finishing work to be done by Miss Frost.  Finally, it was returned to Jefferson room 802 where it was kept for safekeeping until the auction.   Mrs. Ann Smith was the winner of the Biztown Bench 2012 Auction.  The proceeds benefit our school programs for the following school year.  It's a win-win situation.
