School Banking program teaches students about money management

image of school banking posterWatervliet Elementary School is one of 70 schools locally that partner with Capital Communications Federal Credit Union (Cap Com) for its school banking program.

Cap Com school banking takes place on Fridays at 8:30 a.m., starting October 9. Cap Com will donate $10 to the PTA for each new sign up before the end of October. If your child has signed up in the past, they do not need to sign up again.

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.
