Wilshire Students Simulate a Smoothly Running City

On January 10, Wilshire Elementary 5th grade students accompanied Advanced Academics teacher Leanne Trammell to Marketplace. Marketplace is a fun and educational city simulation. The students have jobs to help make the city run smoothly by meeting the needs of the citizens/customers. Each student is paid a salary and learns how to manage their money. Two of our businesses, The Art Studio and The Café were recognized for highest profit margin. The Art Studio was the second highest profitable business, and The Café won "The Most Profitable Business" Award for the day. Congratulations to our Wilshire entrepreneurs!
