During the last quarter of school Chadron Primary School second graders participated in a field trip to Homestead Bank in downtown Chadron.  Homestead Bank has sponsored a supplemental banking and savings curriculum that 2nd grade teachers utilize to help students understand the process of saving and spending.  The program is called Saving with Mandy and Randy and the students really enjoy the instructional materials that help guide them through the saving and spending cycle.  The culminating activity for our students is to then take a trip to the bank to see money in action.  The students always enjoy the tour and especially like the vault.  We would like to send our gratitude the folks at Homestead Bank for sponsoring these materials and for welcoming us to the bank!
