The students of Barton Elementary School welcomed 84 volunteers from American Airlines on Thursday as they celebrated “JA in a Day” with Junior Achievement of Dallas.

This marks the 15th year American Airlines has participated in the successful program with Barton Elementary.

Volunteers from various sectors of the company led classes across every grade level, covering a unique range of topics such as marketing, innovation and economics. “

JA in a Day” allows companies to send volunteers to deliver interactive curriculum at participating schools. Barton students connected with professionals and had fun engaging in discussions and exercises facilitated by their guest teachers.
