Teach Children to Save Day is a national event developed by the American Bankers Association Education Foundation.

With the cooperation of Local and National Banks, bank representatives schedule a meeting with local school administrators to introduce the concept of saving to middle and high school students.

Last year, more than 200 bankers from sponsoring banks visited students in 400+ classrooms in New York State. The bankers conducted a 45-minute literacy-based lesson that focuses on the topic of saving and investing.

There is no charge for teachers or students to participate in Teach Children to Save Day; however, classroom visits may be limited. We will match classrooms on a first-come, first-serve basis. Maximum class size for a visit is 30 students. Teachers are required to remain in the classroom during the banker visit. The banker will bring the handouts and materials needed for the lesson.
I cannot confirm if KHS is participating in this program this year.
Ulster Savings Bank on Wall Street in Kingston will host a raffle to honor the American Bankers Association Education Foundation’s national “Teach Children to Save Day” on Tuesday, April 29th.The raffle prize winner will receive a $500 savings bond from Ulster Savings Bank in recognition of this special day. The drawing will be held on May 1. Entrants must be 18 or younger, and they must enter the raffle by visiting any of the Ulster Savings Bank branches.

Parents will also receive a guide for promoting child savings education. For more information, call 866-440-0391 or visit an Ulster Savings Bank branch.

It's nice to reserve a day once a year topush our kids to understand banking and investment, but well-to-do families tend to instill these values in their kids from the start.
The have-nots are scrapping for food, clothing and a roof over their head.
We need jobs in the area.
