Market Day at Silver Creek Elem. teaches financial literacy

Market Day at Silver Creek Elementary is always a hit with children and staff.

Third grade students at Silver Creek Elementary culminated their financial literacy unit with Market Day Feb. 17.
The students earned (play) money for good behavior, good work habits, and other daily chores. They could also lose money for late work and not following class rules.
