Roosevelt Elementary opens Money Savers, student-run branch of Veridian Credit Union

IMG_1618Students, teachers and administrators of the Council Bluffs Community School District joined Veridian Credit Union staff to celebrate the opening of Roosevelt Money Savers, Council Bluffs’ first in-school, student-run credit union, on Wednesday, January 20.

The credit union was named by Roosevelt Elementary School students who spent the first half of the school year preparing for the credit union to open with a naming contest, job applications, interviews and more. On Wednesday, at the conclusion of a grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration, Roosevelt Money Savers accepted its first deposits.

“We know that financial literacy plays an important role in future success,” said Veridian Branch Manager Haley Mace. “As a credit union, we want to be a resource for creating those successful futures. It’s a goal we share with the Council Bluffs Community School District, and we’re grateful for their partnership.”

Roosevelt Money Savers will be open in the school every Wednesday morning throughout the school year. The savings accounts will be managed by 10 fifth-grade tellers with assistance from Veridian Credit Union staff. Students are encouraged to save money for a specific purpose with a reminder that no amount is too small, and prizes are awarded for achieving savings goals. Deposits will remain in the savings account until the student reaches the end of fifth grade. At that time, the student will receive a check for all the money he or she deposited throughout elementary school.

“We are thrilled to partner with Veridian Credit Union at Roosevelt Elementary as our students will learn about and practice saving money as a life-long skill,” Council Bluffs Community School District Superintendent Martha Bruckner said. “I am grateful to the Roosevelt staff members and administration and to Veridian representatives who are making this possible for our students.”

Veridian Credit Union, founded in 1934 in Waterloo, Iowa, is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by its members. The credit union offers a full range of business and consumer financial services and employs more than 650 people throughout 27 branches. Veridian’s 28th branch will open spring 2016 at 2040 W. Broadway in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Hour of Code

This week is Hour of Code week across the United States. Students all over are getting the chance to learn about what Coding is and how it works. Coding is a way to make a characters move in a game. It is the directions that they get from us. We tell it to move forward or turn left or jump over that block. Every movement that a character does, comes from Coding.

Here at Roosevelt this week 3rd graders were invited to join in on the Coding fun. Every day this week, 3rd graders have the opportunity to meet during their recess and lunch to complete these activities.  There were over 33 3rd graders participating on the first day. There was a lot of excitement in the room. Many were stuck on levels but were able to do some problem solving with others to get through each difficult level. They are very excited to get started each day.
