Patriot Kids participating in Banking in Schools Banking in Schools

As part of our 2012-13 School Improvement Plan to develop community and business partnerships, First Federal Bank began a new program called Bank in School on January 9, 2013.  Parsley was the first school in New Hanover County to be involved in this exciting program! Students have an opportunity to establish a savings account and bring money to school to make deposits.  Accounts may be opened with as little as a $5 deposit.

Community members from the bank will be here one day each month to accept deposits and allow students to do their banking. This will take place in the morning from 7:30 to 7:53 on days opposite of walking club for each grade level. The Bank in School program helps students learn the importance of saving money and keeping track of deposits and savings, which is an important life skill. It also teaches financial literacy, which is an important 21st Century skill.

Bank in School dates 2018-2019 school year:

Financial Literacy Games (web resources)

  • Counting Money - The game serves a number of grade levels, as you can choose between three difficulty levels; counting to 99 cents, ten dollars, and $100 respectively. For any level, Beginner mode allows you to use any combination of coins and bills to make the total, while Expert forces you to use the fewest amount of bills and coins possible.
  • The Great Piggy Bank Adventure - This web game takes the form of a board game where kids learn about and put financial principles into practice; it can even be enjoyed by multiple players.
