Dear Parent or Guardian:
This year we plan to do a “School Savings Star Program” with First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union.
Saving pennies, nickels and dimes will add up to dollars in no time!
The Johnstown School District is committed to providing a well-rounded education to prepare students for success in all facets of their lives. This includes learning the importance of saving money and developing strong savings habits beginning at the elementary school level.
By participating in the school-banking program, your child will learn what a savings account is, begin to appreciate the advantages of saving, and will receive an account statement displaying their account activity. Your child will be able to make their deposits right at school on a designated banking day, or at the First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union main office located at 355 Hales Mills Road in Gloversville, the Walmart branch office located inside the Walmart Supercenter in Gloversville, or the Broadalbin Branch Office located at 3677 State Highway 30 in Broadalbin.
If your child would like to participate in the “School Savings Star Program,” he/she can get their account started at any of the First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union locations. This savings account can be open with as little as $5. The Credit Union will make the first deposit of $5 for all Student Star Savers.
If your child already has an account with First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union, they only need to bring their savings deposit and account number to school on banking day.
The first “School Savings Star” banking day will begin on Wednesday,September 19, 2018 and end on Wednesday,June 5, 2019. Bank days will be on Wednesdays except for holidays or school closings/delays, and will resume the following scheduled Wednesday.
As we strive to provide a quality education, we hope to see your child participate in this program and take advantage of the learning experience it will provide. We thank our First Choice Financial Federal Credit Union partners for their investment in and support of our students and our District.
