On Nov. 9, Northport High School’s Business Club for Students participated in High School Heroes Day at Bellerose Elementary School. A group of 44 business students, grades nine through twelve, were trained by a Junior Achievement representative in order to be "teachers for a day" at Bellerose. This day was organized in an effort to provide a basic overview of the business world to younger students.

The lessons taught focused on how communities work, what economics are, and the circulation of money. In addition to teaching younger students about the economy, the goal of the program was to also provide positive role models for younger children, and to foster effective school-to-school connections. Several students had siblings in the classes they taught, while other students were able to teach in their old classrooms.

Whether teaching or being taught, students thoroughly enjoyed the day!
