Ms. Habben’s first grade classroom is partnered with Security Trust and Savings Bank as their Partners in Excellence partnership for the 2017-2018 school year.

On April 20, Security Trust and Savings Bank stopped by the classroom to teach them about the importance of saving money, and how to do that. The class got to read a story about a young boy, and his struggles to save money and find a safe place to keep his hard earned money. After the story, they did an activity to rate places to save your money from least safe to most safe.

After they learned about saving money, Security Trust and Savings Bank gave each student a piggy bank of their own, along with a brand new quarter to start their savings off right.
