The Watervliet Elementary School PTA reminds parents that this program is a great hands-on way to teach children about banking and the importance of saving money. The school banking programs offers students the opportunity to bring deposits into school every Friday morning. If you would like more information about how your child can become a Cap Com member and begin saving money, visit Cap Com's website or have your child go to the Main Office for an informational packet.
