PRESS RELEASE February 2020
GCS FACS 8 Checkbook Challenge
The Greenwich Central School eighth Grade FACS (Family and Consumer Science) classes have been learning about Financial Management which includes learning about budgeting, banking, credit, and balancing your checkbook.
At the beginning of each 20-week class, the students receive a checkbook and are required to record their transactions in their checkbook register. They earn FACS cash–receiving a weekly direct deposit paycheck by punching a time card at the beginning of each class period and also by signing up for odd jobs. Students who sign up for the additional jobs are required to submit a letter of interest and interview for the position. Students also incur expenses, receive invoices/bills and are required to make payment by writing a check from their checkbook for things such as borrowing/renting or purchase a writing utensil, losing an assignment worksheet, or forgetting to push in their chairs at the end of class. Late payment fees are charged for students not making timely payments. Every five weeks they then reconcile their accounts with “the bank”–a/k/a Ms. Saunders. The grade they earn is based on how accurately they maintain their checkbook register. As an added incentive students from each class were recognized as either having maintained the most accurate register or accumulating the highest balance.
The first semester “Checkbook Challenge” winners were Molly Abate and Simone Waters. There were also nine honorable mentions: Kiley Allen, Elizabeth Darrow, Sara Douglas, Meena Koudelka, Lindsey Kurz, Allison Michel, Grant Traver, Turner Trombley, and Dorothy VanPelt . A special thank you to TD Bank and TCT Federal Credit Union for providing the prizes.
Pictured above are Checkbook Challenge winners:
Dorothy VanPelt, Grant Travor, Sara Douglas, Lindsey Kurz, Meena Koudelka, Turner Trombley, Simone Waters, Molly Abate, Elizabeth Darrow, Kiley Allen, Allison Michel.
Deadline has been extended for tickets to the dinner to Friday.
Movie tickets and raffle tickets will be sold at the event.

On Saturday, February 1st, the Greenwich Junior Senior High School Mathcounts team competed in the Tri-County Chapter Competition at SUNY Adirondack. Caroline Kelly and Joe Radovich made it to the Top Ten Countdown Round with Caroline placing 5th and Joe placing in 8th. The official team of Noah Davis, Jackson Fortier, Caroline Kelly and Joe Radovich placed third; securing them a spot at the NYS competition on March 7th at RPI. Ava Aierstok and Sam Palacios also performed well as individuals. The students are coached by 7th grade math teacher Nicole Fortier. Pictured are Sam Palacios, Jackson Fortier, Caroline Kelly, Noah Davis, Joe Radovich, and Ava Aierstok.
The 3rd quarter began this week in the Jr/Sr high school and students in 7th grade electives changed from one course to the next. Before the switch occurred, students in Mr. Aierstok’s Technology class and Mrs. Saunders FACS class got together to make cookies. However, these were not ordinary cookies. These cookies were made with cookie cutters that the 7th grade students designed and 3-D printed in Mr. Aierstok’s Technology course. You can see some examples below. This was a fun end of quarter collaboration that the students thoroughly enjoyed.
