Congratulations to FICB Participants
On March 10th Ms. Leazer took JA students to participate in the Financial Investment Challenge Bowl (FICB) held at Manpower. FICB is a team competition held at the Middle School and High School levels to test students in business and economic concepts that encompass local, national, and global events. Students were selected by Ms. Leazer based on their knowledge and dedication to learning business and economic concepts.
The program kicked off with a Saturday meeting and information session in January. Once the core teams were chosen, Ms. Leazer spent numerous hours, juggling her time between teaching and coaching, preparing the students for competition. Participants were expected to attend after-school sessions and prepare independently.
Two teams from BEAM participated against 10 other schools from southeastern Wisconsin. BEAM came in 2nd place, coming up just short in the finals against Golda Meir Middle School. Congratulations to all who participated. Thank you, Ms. Leazer, for all your hard work and dedication. You efforts are evident in the students’ success. We look forward to bringing the trophy to BEAM next year.
