Reality Fair

In April of 2017 we hosted our fourth annual Reality Fair.  Over 100 seniors were be given a profile featuring a job - something they were interested in - and a corresponding salary; then they went around the fair and met with merchants and representatives of organizations they will really have to work when they are out in the world. Volunteers from Rotary Club acted as realtors to help find a place to live, bankers to open a bank account or get a loan or mortgage, insurance agents to help figure out health, car, and other insurance costs, and more.  The students visited clothing stores, home furnishings, and entertainment stores, amongst others. At the end, they completed a budget and got an idea of what the reality of living on a certain salary is like.  Our next Reality Fair is planned for April 2017.  Students interested in attending should contact Lindsay Rosenman (lrosenman@abschools.org) or their counselors.
