ELLICOTT CITY, Md - In a new partnership, Jeffers Hill Elementary School and PNC Bank will work together to help students learn the importance of personal financial planning. Students will also develop the mathematical and economics skills needed for daily life.
The collaboration will be formalized with an official signing on Friday.
PNC will create an in-school bank for Jeffers Hill Elementary students and staff. Selected fourth and fifth grade students will be trained as tellers and will tour a bank to learn how the institution operates.
Bank representatives also will work with school staff to give students additional opportunities to practice math skills related to money, decimals and fractions and to share information about careers in the financial industry.
