ANNUAL PROGRAM INTRODUCES FOURTH GRADERS TO BANKING


The annual fourth-grade banking program at Otisville Elementary introduces students to the basics of banking and gives them practical advice on money management.  

 

Students learn the difference between needs and wants and discuss money-saving strategies for things like college, paying bills, and buying a car or a house. 

 

Representatives from Orange Bank & Trust Co., the program sponsor, shared interesting facts about printed money and answered the students’ questions about the banking industry.

 

To encourage students to start saving, our visitors left them with a small piggy bank, with a quarter. It’s a start!
