BONUS Field Trip - F&M Bank

Join us for a bonus field trip to F&M Bank. RSVP's required! Contact Shana if you plan to go as space is limited!

What? Banking workshop on saving and financial education

When? Friday, April 30th at 1pm

Where? F&M Bank in Gretna

How much? It is FREE!

Who should participate? The program is intended for later elementary students (ie: 3rd-5th grade), but younger siblings (or of course, older siblings) who understand the money concepts will be allowed to attend as long as they are not a distraction for the group.

National Teach Children to Save Day is an annual event that has already helped reach over 3 million children nationwide. The program's goal is to encourage bankers to reach 5 million students before the end of 2011, the 15th anniversary of Teach Children to Save.

Representatives from F&M Bank will give a presentation to your group discussing the difference between needs and wants, how savings accounts and compounding interest work, and we have an activity book for each student. A bank tour will also be given while the students are at the bank. The presentation will take about 30-40 minutes and the material works best for groups of about 25 or less.
