Continued from page 1—Mrs. Sadler Retires
career. She went to a new country school every year
on March 1st, attended high school in New
Elweelen. She graduated in 1953, then I went to
Kearney State College which then, was called
Nebraska State College. All of her college work has
been at UNK.
Since Mrs. Sadler is an amazing teacher and has
helped many students graduate. The history of her
teaching began in 1953 in a rural school by Hyannis
NE for six years followed by teaching in a Kearney
school for three years. She then stayed at home with
her daughter for 20 years, then I came back to
teaching. Her first job interview was at Litchfield
and that was 29 years ago. Sadler recalls, “I was
hired to do special education, and later on, Spanish.
I taught Spanish for 3 years.”
When asked what Mrs. Sadler will do when she is
retired she simply shrugged and said “I don’t know,
watch TV, and play some cards!” With teary eyes
and a heavy heart, Mrs. Sadler said the thing she
will miss the most will be working with all the
students at Litchfield.
Good luck and best wishes in your retirement Mrs.
Sadler. You touched so many lives in your time at
Litchfield and you will always be remembered.
The community is invited to an open house honor-
ing Mrs. Sadler on May 21 at from 12:30-2:00 in the
Freshman Compete in State-Wide
Stock Market Game
The SIFMA Foundation's acclaimed The Stock
Market Game™ program is an online simula-
tion of the global capital markets that engages
students grades 4-12 in the world of econom-
ics, investing and personal finance, and pre-
pares them for financially independent fu-
tures. More than 600,000 students take part
every school year across all 50 states. The
Stock Market Game has reached 17 million
students since its inception in 1977. SIFMA
Associates state, “Students who played The Stock
Market Game™ scored significantly higher on mathe-
matics and financial literacy tests than their peers that
did not play.”
All eleven freshman competed in the Stock
Market Game as part of the curriculum in In-
troduction to Business class taught by Lynette
Finley. Mrs. Finley likes to involve the stu-
dents in this real life activity as it teaches the
kids about not only investments but risk,
portfolio management, the economy and how
it affects business. The students played the
game for 12 weeks. Teams were formed in
early January and students studied different
stocks, the history of the company, and the
economy effects on the business and stock
price. The students were giving $100,000 to
build their portfolio. The game ended on April
12 th with one team finishing in the top 5
statewide with an overall gain of $17,882.07.
219 teams competed in the statewide game.
All teams competing finished in the top 75.
