Triton Students Win Statewide Stock Market Game

Congratulations to Sophomores Joseph Luciano and Benjamin Campbell who took first and second place, respectively, in the “year-long” Stock Market Game in Massachusetts! They were competing against 889 other players/teams in the state.

The Stock market game is run by the “Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association” (SIFMA), a United States industry trade group representing securities firms, banks, and asset management companies.

The Stock Market Game is really more of a simulation than a game. Players’ achievement in the game is based on real companies and the actual stock prices of those companies.  Each player/team get a “virtual” $100,000 to invest in the stocks of real companies, and gain earnings based on actual stock performance.

Individually, Joe made an $82,012 profit and Ben made a $55,231 profit, in less than 8 months.

Richard Fisher, a Business Education teacher at Triton, has been using the game in his Accounting and Principles of Finance class for the past 10 years.  In 2012, Triton student Henryk Jankowski rank 23rd in the game statewide.  This was the highest ranking achieved at Triton until this year.  That score helped propel Henryk to qualify for the DECA International competition in Florida. Henryk is currently working on his Master’s Degree in Accounting at Bentley University.

Joe and Ben will be honored at a luncheon awards ceremony on May 31 at the Fidelity Investments Auditorium. Again, a huge congratulations on this impressive accomplishment. We envision a prosperous future for you both!

The aim of the society is to promote high standards of scholarship, to reward excellence in the highest level of instruction of Foreign Language at Triton High School and to provide a service to the school and community. The Triton advisors to the society are Mrs. Regina Symonds for French and Dr. Eben Williams for Spanish. The organization’s goal is to stimulate interest in the study of foreign language, global learning and diplomacy, and to create enthusiasm for and an understanding of foreign cultures and civilization, to promote and perpetuate international friendship and to reward efforts toward furthering solidarity in the International world.

The inductees were honored at a multilingual “transmission of the torch” induction ceremony in the school library on Thursday evening, April 12th, 2018 by current FLHS members of the graduating class of 2018, and by the Society’s Officers.  Opening the ceremony were Superintendent Forget and Principal Ruggere, who stressed the academic achievements of the new inductees and current members: all are currently enrolled in a foreign language course, have a minimum 90 percent cumulative average of all foreign language courses taken from ninth grade to the present, have an 83 percent cumulative average and have a behavioral record free from suspension, instances of academic dishonesty and/or a pattern of inappropriate behavior.  

“As a member of the Triton Regional High School Chapter, I promise to devote myself to the study of the French and Spanish language/s in order to master them. Someday, remembering that a language can be a strong tie between persons of differing origins of race or religion. As a citizen of my country, I promise to promote friendship and understanding between the United States and the other lands of the world. This is my promise and my oath.”

Community Call to Action

Good Afternoon,

This past November, our students in grades 6-12 participated in the Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behavior survey which measures the internal/external “assets” or qualities that our youth possess, as well as risk behaviors that they identify. This survey was conducted in our district as well as three other schools in the region, including Amesbury, Georgetown, and Newburyport, through the work of the Essex County Asset Builder Network (www.ecabnetwork.org).

Youth from all four districts gathered and were the first to view the data at the Youth Data Summit in February, and have created a presentation that gives an overview of the data and highlights strengths and areas from growth.

We invite you to join us for a Community Call to Action meeting on May 9, from 6-8 PM, at the Triton Regional High School. Youth will present an overview of the results and we will begin a community discussion to highlight ways we can build engagement around efforts to develop strong and healthy youth.

All community members are welcome to attend, as we all contribute to the development of the youth in our community, not just those who have or work directly with children.  Community leaders, school staff, law enforcement, religious community, community agencies, and business owners all have a role to play. We need to build upon the positive energy that so many of our students have demonstrated in recent weeks, and come together to provide supports for those that need it. The more voices we bring to the table, the more successful this project will be. Being involved with the Essex County Asset Builder Network is a chance to help make a change.

The Essex County Asset Builder Network is a group of like-minded communities (Amesbury, Georgetown, Newbury, Rowley, Salisbury and Newburyport) who are committed to providing supports and positive youth development opportunities to build healthy youth.  Each community member plays a role in that development, not just parents or teachers.  Tina Los, Regional Project Coordinator for the ECAB Network acknowledged, “By joining together as a community we will create connections that will help not only the youth thrive, but help the community thrive as well.”

This Call to Action Meeting is the first in a series of discussions that will take place in the community to focus on how we can strengthen and empower our students. Your voice and opinion are valuable, and I hope you are able to join us for this event.  .

Sincerely,
Brian
