Thank you for all that you do! When using engaging economic and personal finance education with your students, you have a positive impact on choices they make. The lessons they learn will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
We hope that information we have shared has been helpful in supporting your work in the classroom. This issue of Tuesday Tips will be the final e-note for the school year. Please look for TT to resume in early September. In the meantime, our office remains open during the summer if you need support with curriculum planning. Have a GREAT summer!
