Education you can bank on

On Thursday January the 16th our STARS program and Ms. Bevacqua’s 12th grade class were visited by Ms. Melissa and Ms. Dana of Lodi’s TD bank. After being led on a tour of our program by the students, Melissa and Dana provided a wonderful lesson in budgeting money for the assembled classes. The students participated in activities like budgeting money to pay for weekly school lunches and figuring out income and expenses. Afterwards the group was able to ask their own questions about banking and opening accounts. In the future, we plan to have more visits from the TD bankers and will be organizing CBI trips to our local bank. Not only will these experiences be educational, but they will also allow us to become personally closer to the members of our community. We thank our new friends at TD Bank for this amazing new learning opportunity and look forward to all of the things we can accomplish together. -Tom Barton
