Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a third grade teacher who is currently holding the attention of twenty five children. My children don't have many experiences to rely upon which encourage thoughts of college, productive citizenship, or adult life as a whole. I am interested in starting a banking at school program, which would incorporate business ethics, knowledge of earning potential, and banking. By encouraging my students to use literacy and math skills to produce goods, children develop interests, and find practical use for skills they are acquiring daily. In order to produce the goods that will be sold, we would need ten sewing machines with warranties and service contracts, which would be shared by about thirty students. The sewing machines will be used to make quilts and pillows. These items will be sold at school events and lunch periods. Children will need to use creative skills and geometry in order to design the items that will be made. The proceeds will be used to obtain new materials, and profits will be shared amongst the students by being deposited into their accounts. This will help them learn about the value of saving, which is a life skill. We also hope to donate some of our products to other organizations in the hope that the children will take pride in being able to give. The skills the children will acquire through this program will help them to realize their potential to reach higher goals in the future, as well as help them put into perspective what they are capable of doing now.
