Sand Creek Elementary’s investment in Stock Market Game pays off
HIGHLANDS RANCH – The students at Sand Creek Elementary may have a future one day on Wall Street. This year, the school swept the Middle School division of the Stock Market Game.
The SIFMA Foundation recently announced that the school won first, second and third place in the year-long online simulation program.
The Stock Market prepares fourth through twelfth-graders for financially independent futures by thrusting them into the world of economics, investing and personal finance. During the experience, students have the opportunity to buy and sell virtual stocks in a simulated version of the global capital markets.
More than 600,000 students take part every school year across all 50 states. The Stock Market Game has reached 15 million students since its inception in 1977.
The winning teams from Sand Creek were from Marcie Stacy and Maria Applegate’s homeroom classes. Below are the students in each team:
2013-2014 Stock Market Game - Yearlong - Middle School Division
1st Place – Ms. Stacy’s Homeroom
2nd Place – Ms. Stacy’s Homeroom
3rd Place – Ms. Applegate’s Homeroom
Maria Montero Atencio
The students will be honored by the SIFMA Foundation during a ceremony on May 19.
