What are Your Savings Goals?
Students learn about saving

Central Bank of KC visited 6 urban classrooms with a fun lesson about saving, as part of a program called Teach Children to Save (TCTS). TCTS is a program that is organized by the American Banker’s Association and locally by the Federal Reserve Bank of KC.  The first and second graders were excited to hear the stories we read about saving money - The Berenstain Bears Trouble with Money (2nd grade) and Start Saving Henry (1st grade). We visited four classrooms at Scuola Vita Nuova, and two classrooms at Garfield Elementary.

Reading with Buddies

Central Bank has always supported Lead to Read and their mission to help urban KC children become better readers. This year, we just finished our 7th year volunteering for this worthwhile mission. We have had reading buddies at Wendell Phillips, Phillips@Attucks and Garfield Elementary. Lead to Read started eight years ago in just a couple of classrooms. In the 2018-19, the program has grown to over 1,100 volunteers who read to students in 53 urban classrooms providing more than 500 hours of literacy support each week.
