Literacy on the Lawn
On the evening of October 13, our bankers put on their Park beanies and headed out for Literacy on the Lawn at Stingel Elementary School in Ontario. Each of our volunteer bankers was paired with a student to read a book (about a financial topic, of course!). Our bankers chose books like, Just Saving My Money by Mercer Mayer, Curious George Saves His Pennies by Margaret & H. A. Reys, and Bunny Money by Rosemary Wells. We’re not sure if the kids or our bankers had a better time! Students and their parents were treated to some fun kid-themed goodies to take home (like slime!) as a special incentive to encourage them to keep reading and keep saving those dollars and cents!
