Jeans With a PurposeMay 2, 2018
On Tuesday, April 24th, students at Coulterville Elementary School participated in National Teach Children to Save Day activities. Teach Children to Save is a national program sponsored by the ABA (American Bankers Association) Community Engagement Foundation that organizes banker volunteers to help young people develop a savings habit early in life. The actual date for Save day 2018 was April 20th, but due to scheduling the presentation was made on April 24. This year representatives from Coulterville Banking Center (Kim Reuscher, Amy Barton, Tonya Thompson) and First State Bank of Campbell Hill (Ryan Berry, Becky Dodson) visited 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. Students participated in a role play activity called “There’s No Business-Like Bank Business.” The activity introduced students to the benefits of saving money in a bank, explained about earning interest on savings and paying interest on loans. Students also learned how a bank receives its money supply and how it operates as a business. Approximately 60 students participated in the activity this year. At the end of the presentation students were left with savings banks to start saving their money.
