HSFPP Weekly Update # 96—End of the Year
MESSAGE FROM FLASHMAN: The school year is almost over and most of you will give your final exams this week or next. As a result, this will be our last update for the 2003-2004 school year.
As part of your final exams, you might want to include questions from the 2004 Jump$tart Coalition Survey, which is included in Update # 92. This will let you know how your students compare with students nationwide. I also would appreciate it if you would share your students’ composite score for each question with your county Extension agent or mail this information directly to me. As Henny Youngman might say, “Send me your scores, please!” This will help me focus next year’s lessons on areas that your students need to work on.
I also want to thank all of you who sent feedback on our Weekly Updates this year. I believe that, because of your feedback, this year’s updates have improved both in content and appearance. If you know of teachers who might want to receive our Weekly Updates, please give them our website address and instructions on how they can sign up.
I’ll see many of you this summer for the graduate course, FAM 759, which will focus on financial education resources for all age groups. This should help you in teaching the HSFPP and provide you with information to improve your own financial decisions. For more details, go to Update # 82.
Don’t forget to order your student workbooks before you leave for the summer so you’ll have them when you start school next fall. And have a great summer!
