We recognize our responsibility to help our students realize that the world awaiting them is fast-paced, intuitive, and complicated. MTPS realizes that we have a duty to prepare our students for their next challenge in life and the many challenges that will follow after they leave our halls.
To help achieve that end, we have created an initiative entitled “The Marlboro Marketplace.” The project is entirely optional and will not be graded. It is a voluntary project aimed at helping students understand the concepts of financial literacy and entrepreneurship.
We want our students to engage in a real-world activity that helps them gain fiscal knowledge, habits, and skills that must be mastered in order for each student to make informed decisions about personal finance. Over the next few weeks, we will be discussing the concept of the marketplace in each school.
Please talk to your child about this unique opportunity!
