CLARK — Students in Cindy Golinowski’s Money Management class at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark recently celebrated Financial Literacy Month by doing research on U.S. companies. The assignment had students take an in-depth look at organizations like Nike, Coca-Cola, Samsung, and others and analyze their earnings for the past three years, stock performance, and plans to expand or cut back.
School Library Media Specialist Kate Ryan assisted the students with navigating the company websites to locate the facts required to complete the assignment.
“Financial literacy is an important part of the school’s curriculum, not to mention a vital life skill. Companies provide financial information on their websites, but it’s not always easy to find. This project allows students to feel more at ease researching these important facts,” said Ryan.
