Dear Parents,

My name is Mrs. Turk. I am the Business Education Teacher at River Rouge High School. Your son/daughter is taking one or more of the following Business classes: Career Exploration, Business Math/Personal Finance or Business Management. It is my expectation that your child come to class daily, on time and prepared to learn. Please speak with your child about the appropriate use of their cell phone. The classroom environment is not an appropriate time for them to be on or using their cell phone for any reason. Your cooperation in helping to address this matter is greatly appreciated. The following is an overview of what your son/daughter is learning in my class.

  • Career Exploration - Students research and learn about various careers they are interested in. They locate, research and apply to colleges that have a major in their career path. They learn about financial aid and scholarships. They learn resume writing, interview and employability skills.
  • Business Math/Personal Finance - Students learn about the importance of budgeting and saving money, opening a bank account, credit, the importance of maintaining a good credit score, calculating gross and net pay.
  • Business Management - Students learn how to type various business correspondences, how to use advanced features within Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint

I am looking forward to meeting and/or corresponding with you during this 2016/2017 school year!
