BANK IN SCHOOL
TRINITY, APS EAGLES, LINDEN LEOPARD & BERGAN BRANCH OF RVR BANK
We look forward to opening our bank in school branches at Arlington Elementary School, Archbishop Bergan Elementary School and Linden Elementary School each fall and welcoming Trinity for the first year of banking this October. The branches provide elementary students the opportunity to not only learn about savings and how banks operate, but to become savers themselves. We are building a community of economists and want these young people to become savvy savers. The bank in school branches operate during the school year.
The student accounts opened in school are only active at their respective school branches. Withdrawals are only allowed when the student leaves the school or graduates the elementary school. The branches are open weekly during the school year. Students have their own ledgers to record their deposits. In lieu of interest, children receive incentives provided by RVR Bank when they make deposits into their savings accounts – based on consistent savings and amount of savings.
The bank is staffed by students from each school. They are joined by staff from the bank as well.
Students must have a signed permission slip by a parent or guardian on file in order to participate. However, permission slips can be completed anytime throughout the year.
