SIF's November Update

Stocks in the Future

It’s All About The Students!

Stocks in the Future is off to a great start  to this school year!  At Hampden Elementary/Middle School, for example, 8th graders were very eager to begin their 3rd and final year in the program. It’s impressive the information students retained over the summer. How many 8th graders can talk about “price trends,” “sales growth,” “profit margin,” “free cash flow?” They can! Not only that, but throughout the summer, they continued researching and following companies they invested in. They had discussions with family members, and were thinking about what purchases they would make with their earned incentive dollars in the 2014-2015 school year. 

Hamilton Elementary/Middle is off to a great start too!  SIF is fortunate to have a relationship with Social Investment Outreach (SIO) from Johns Hopkins University.  SIO members are JHU undergraduates with an interest in finance and social responsibility.   During their visits with SIF students, they play an interactive game called “Sweet Success.”  The game provides students with scenarios they may encounter while running a cupcake company.  The scenarios incorporate information they have learned in SIF AND also ask them to consider environmental and socially-conscious solutions.  During SIO's November 14th visit to 6th graders at Hamilton/Elementary Middle School, the young students were using many advanced financial terms and concepts and were very engaged in discussing game scenarios.

So many wonderful things are happening in all of our schools!
Students are focused, striving to improve their grades and attendance, and becoming investors for life.
