Saint Dominic School Students Win New Jersey Stock Market Game
Saint Dominic School is proud to announce that a team of eighth grade students won first place in the Middle School Southern Division of the year-long session of the New Jersey Stock Market Game! Patrick Clark and Marco Cocuzza researched various companies to invest $100,000 in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Over 220 teams competed in this seven-month session, and the team attained a 33% growth return on their investments! Students have enjoyed the challenge of the Stock Market Game because it connected classroom economics lessons with real-life decision-making.
Marco and Patrick will be joining our fall session winning teams at the annual Awards Ceremony on May 26, 2015, at Stockton University. Two teams of seventh grade students won first and second place in the fall session of the Stock Market Game. Joseph Liberatore, Michael Melone, Christian Palagonia, Jake Peto, Anthony Senk, Anthony Speciale, and Liam Tuttle will be recognized for their winning investments strategies.
We are extremely proud of our Stock Market experts and congratulate them on their amazing accomplishments!
