Looking back on Special Projects Week!
Special Projects Week is a great opportunity to learn about something you're passionate about that is not traditionally taught in school. My Special Project was Wall Street: The Study of the Stock Market. It was beneficial to learn about finances, and it gave me a better understanding of how money really works. Becoming educated about how the real world works and learning life skills are truly crucial for success.
