WPS Juniors and Seniors get 'Reality Check' - What's life like on the other side of graduation?

Security State Bank partners with Wewoka Public Schools to host event educating grads about life

December 18, 2019

Through the sponsorship of Security State Bank, Wewoka High School is excited to announce a new annual event

for our junior and senior students and our great community.

 

 

On December 19th , from 9:00 a.m. to noon, you will get a taste of what life is like on the other side of graduation.  Reality Check is "The Game of Life". It will be held at the Wewoka Civic Center (the school will bus you there).

 

During this event, local businesses will come together for a day just for you.  There will be bankers, realtors, tag agents, car dealers, law enforcement and many other types of business volunteers create a realistic vision into adulthood.

 

During the game, each of you will be assigned a career, a salary, marital status and up to three children.  You will then be released into the civic center where a mock community awaits. This community will include approximately 20 separate booths full of local businessmen and women who are eager to teach lessons on just how far a dollar can go.  Each of you will open bank accounts, make purchases, enroll your imaginary children into daycare, and seek healthcare using the salary you've been given.

 

This is an excellent opportunity for you to gain some insight into the many responsibilities of adulthood, while offering an opportunity for you to think about your career choices. 

 

Your participation in this event will make this a day you will never forget. It is a day we are all very excited about! Please know that our school is the first in our area to hold an event like this, and we are proud that you will be the very first students from Wewoka to experience it. We want to remind you of the expectations we have of you on this day, as you will represent our great school to the community during this event. Please be respectful, give your full attention to playing the game, learn something new, and HAVE FUN! We are so excited to offer this event to you. Please take full advantage of it.

 
You are the future of this town, this state, this country, and the WORLD! You are OUR future! Your teachers believe in you and know you will do great things.
