Thoreau Middle School
In order for the students to get the full benefit of Finance Park, we need to have many parents participate as “financial counselors” for a group of approximately eight students. Parent volunteers will need to go through a one-hour long training at the JA Finance Park which will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. on the morning of the field trip. Volunteers will need to arrive at 8:20 a.m. to check in. Students will be going on the field trip with their team. The field trip will end around 1:30 p.m. Below are Thoreau’s dates for Finance Park:
Wombats → Tuesday, December 4 (Alley)
Falcons → Wednesday, December 5 (Christoff)
Falcons → Thursday, December 6 (Valenti)
Sloths → Friday, December 7 (McCullock)
Please sign up for the date that matches the team your child is on.
Prior to this visit, you will need to complete the Finance Park Volunteer Registration Form. This form must be completed even if you have volunteered with Junior Achievement before as registrations expire. Please take a moment to do this as soon as possible. You will receive an email confirmation from JA Finance Park® providing you with information on how to plan for the day.
Please Note: All volunteers must present a valid Government Issued Photo I.D. to JA Finance Park® staff when they check-in. You may not stay to volunteer without an I.D.
As there is no time to leave the facility during the program, plan to bring a non-perishable brownbag lunch with you.
