My Students

"Impossible is nothing." That is the quote that our schools financial club lives by. We do no let barriers stand in our way to learn about money matters. We do not let lack of funding or resources scare us off from the important job of getting what we need to build our financial lives stronger.

Our school is located in the heart of Idaho.

We are famous for our beautiful location, cultural sensitivity and progressive educational ideas. Our school has a rich academic and athletic tradition, as well as a strong support from the local environmental leaders. And we pride ourselves on the fact that we get strong community support yearly. My "green team" AKA my money team, are an adventurous, active bunch and are very interested in learning new ways to learn about money and how it affects our school, community, and state. They're always looking for a new challenge. We pride ourselves in knowing that the we must learn about financial matters to control our own destiny.

My Project

Our Motto: "Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing." That's how we roll! Our main objective is to have a portable computer/tablet that can be used to track financial data. We also do financial out reach to the people without the technological resources within the community. They have money concerns and we want to help. And we like to measure the results. We need a portable iPad to create documents, publish brochures, link our videos to youtube, and connect with other students via the internet. We need one that is portable and links to WI-Fi spots as visit areas within our community.

Creditreport.com is a great sponsor of financial literacy projects.

They will fund up to 50%. So they've got our back. Now we need your support. Chances are you are into investing and money matters. And you care about what happens to the next generation. We get you. So please help us with funding so we can continue our charge in keeping the next generation informed and updated with financial literacy.
