Renaissance Public Academy Grant

The Molalla Figaro’s store was able to provide a grant through the H.E.L.P. organization to help the Renaissance Public Academy with their budget. Here’s a nice letter we received from the school.


Hello and Thank you!

This year my students were generously given money through the H.E.L.P. Grant in order to attend Junior Achievement Finance Park. Even though we were not able to attend the actual simulation in May, we were able to go through all of the curriculum in the classroom before the school was closed. I do not have simulation pictures to share, but I did snap a photo one day as we were working on a budgeting project.

The curriculum was informative and useful for the students. Thank you so much for providing this opportunity. We had fun as we planned budgets, saw the benefits and draw backs of credit, and even looked at first houses, apartments, and cars online and the costs associated with them. It was eye opening for sure. The students were extremely excited to attend the simulation and my hope is that we will be able to reschedule when we return to school.

Thanks again! You provided a great service to the 7th -9th graders at Renaissance Public Academy.
