A group of West Farms students is bringing the stock market from Wall Street to their Vyse Avenue school.

Twice a week, P.S. 314 fifth-grader Yunique Evans and 14 other students stay after school to become experts in buying and selling stock.

Paraprofessionals Lanaya Bellamy and Judy Cruz run the stock market club, transforming a fourth-floor classroom into a trading floor. They teach elementary schoolers how to monitor markets, when it is best to buy and when it is time to cash out.

Last year, the kids won the citywide Stock Market Games against other schools.

This year is the first tyhat third-graders are allowed in the program.
