Hamilton hosts “Reality Check” financial literacy event

Hamilton High School Business Education Department will hold its third annual “Reality Check” financial literacy simulation March 27 from 7:15 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Silver Spring Country Club.

The financial literacy simulation prepares students for economic decisions they will one day face. Upon arrival, each student receives a “life status” card which gives them details about their Reality Check life such as their career, marital-family status and salary. They must visit stations and make essential life decisions about how to pay for housing, insurance, utilities, food and childcare.

Business representatives, community members and school staff volunteer to work the stations, giving students options based on their the information on their life status.

Silver Spring Country Club is located at N56 W21318 Silver Spring Drive, Menomonee Falls.
