The First National Bank Introduces New Financial Literacy Program
The First National Bank and Trust Company of Newtown announced it will sponsor a new financial literacy program at St. Andrew Catholic School in Newtown. The First recently opened a satellite bank branch with the help of student tellers inside the school. The new program teaches the practical financial skills, habits, and values necessary to save and handle money responsibly.
With an innovative curriculum supplement, Saving with Mandy and Randy, students are doing more than reading and coloring story pages. They are learning vocabulary words related to savings, identifying coins, adding and subtracting dollars and cents, completing activity sheets and practicing savings skills. They are even learning how to complete deposit tickets for savings accounts.
“We are proud to sponsor this program at Saint Andrew School,” explained Dan Schaffer, President of The First. “Introducing our children to financial skills that will carry them into the future is just one more way we remain committed to our local community.”
Founded in 1864, The First is Bucks County’s oldest, most established bank, with twelve branches throughout Bucks County. First National Bank is committed to local ownership, operation and investment.
