4th and 5th Grade Banking

The first Banking Day of the school year is Wednesday, October 10th. This will be the 19th year in which Watertown Savings Bank has offered this program to your students.

Bank representatives will be available from 8:10-8:30am every Wednesday morning in the library during the school year. If your child participated in the program last year, he or she can simply pick up where they left off. Ask them to bring their register and to remember the punch card so they can keep track of their deposits.

New account kits will be available for any student who would like to join the program. The purpose of the program is to establish the good habit of saving money on a regular basis. The student takes the responsibility to make weekly visits to the banker and make the account balance grow.
