Reading is an Investment
The Reading is an Investment program is brought to us from our State Treasurer’s office. The program uses literature to help talk about being responsible with money. The program takes a two-prong approach to promoting financial literacy -- class or library instruction and personal reading.
So far this year, we have read stories and then discussed; saving money toward a goal, how we spend money, how we make money, and making big decisions such as; if we could use money to help someone else.
You will soon see a reading log coming home with your child. If you choose to complete the log and mail it to the State Treasurer’s Office by March 15, 2017, then your child has a chance to win a $250 college savings account! The reading requirements include 3 titles that have to do with money which are being read during their library time! You will see inside their log is a sticker with the titles already read.
