ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Students at Mother Teresa Regional School in Atlantic Highlands made money in the Stock Market. Mrs. Patricia Hale, middle school math teacher, led students in the National Stock Market Game. The game gave students the chance to invest a hypothetical $100,000 in an online portfolio. The students learned economic and financial concepts. The game ended April 27th and MTRS students did well. The team of 8th grade students Daniel Hennessey, Connary Kennedy, and Jacob White placed first in the Southern Region Middle School Division out of 245 teams. The school had an additional three teams in the top 20 in the region, 4th place team of seventh graders Grace Molloy, Olivia Micalizzi, and Tabitha Larocca, and a 19th place team of 7th graders Mary McGee and Julianna Regine. Michaela Diaz had the top score for the 6th grade class. The top team has been invited to the awards ceremony on June 6th at Richard Stockton College.
