A local financial coach is excited to return to Clinton schools' classrooms this school year and it starts next month when Clinton Elementary School students will be introduced to the world of banking.
Connie Unruh at the TS Institute at First National Bank in Clinton says parents can anticipate information coming home with their students regarding the banking program at CES.
According to Unruh, starting Wednesday, November 3, this will be a real saving account with real money. She encourages parents to talk with kids about saving money and setting goals in preparation for the program's start.
For low-income students, Unruh says there is going to be no minimum deposit required to participate. On top of incentives for all students, she hopes this will allow those low-income families to participate.
Clinton Elementary School kids will be bringing home information about the program in the weeks ahead. Unruh looks forward to bringing this program to Clinton as it's had great success all over the midwest.
