“It’s never too early to start building students’ financial literacy. We believe that creating foundations that build upon each other over time is the key to having graduates go on feeling really prepared for handling financial matters as adults. So starting as early as kindergarten and having a dose each year that stacks on top of their foundation of knowledge we believe is important.” -Chris Gdowski, Superintendent, Adams 12 Five Star Schools
Each elementary school program involves four to five lessons of 30 to 45 minutes each, which can be delivered all in one day or one lesson at a time over multiple days. All programs are offered at no cost to schools.
For 2020-2021, all programs are being delivered with our brand new virtual option!
