Financial Literacy Month

Logo

In celebration of Financial Literacy Month, the district is aiming to ensure that all students have a strong foundation in financial education so that they can establish and maintain healthy financial habits.  

An increased focus on financial literacy will enable students to think critically and make positive decisions regarding finance. Through various lessons and activities, students will become wise and knowledgeable consumers, savers and investors.

As a means of strengthening the home-to-school connection, the district’s Financial Literacy Committee, consisting of parents, teachers and administrators, has made vast strides toward implementing programs to enhance districtwide student financial education.

Please see below to view a number of informative resources and articles which pertain to enhancing financial literacy. Additionally, check back within the coming weeks as we highlight some of the activities our students have been taking part in within the classroom to help strengthen their financial knowledge.
