Teach a Child to Save Day Educates Hundreds of Area Students
In celebration of the national “Teach A Child to Save” Day on April 24, second-grade students from The Freedom School were among more than 400 students throughout the St. Louis region who learned the importance of keeping a piggy bank.
Volunteer instructors from M&I Bank, a part of BMO Financial Group, visited 19 schools last month and educated students about saving, borrowing and interest. The curriculum was provided by the University of Missouri-St. Louis Center of Entrepreneurship and Economic Education.
