Shiocton seniors participate every year in a Reality Check.
On Wednesday, Jan 9 seniors were interviewed by a variety of professionals. The students are matched up to professionals with their interest in a life career. All interviews are private and after the initial interview each senior student will get an income related to the career they were interviewed for.
On Friday, Jan. 11, the students went to the gym for their reality check.
The gym was set up with professionals in their field for each student to visit, to budget and then spend their money accordingly.
This experience gave each senior a taste of what their future might be like when then complete high school or further their education.
There were reality booths like insurance, auto, mortgage, fate, groceries, rent, pets and so forth, anything that would cause an individual to spend money.
