What is Kid’s Bank?
Kid’s Bank is a student run bank, sponsored by Bank of America. Kid’s Bank is open to all students, K-5, at Rowlett Academy.
Kid’s Bank is an excellent opportunity for kids all around school, especially for 5th graders, because they can work at the bank. They get in by actually applying for the job while they’re in 4th grade. Kid’s Bank is supervised and the fifth graders are trained by Bank of America employee volunteers, parent volunteers, and staff volunteers.
What are some of the Promotions?
Monthly promotions are promotions that only pop up once in a while and last for one or two months. Some of our most popular promotions have been: the Spring Dunk Tank Party, Pizza Parties, Doughnuts with the Principal and Reserved Seating for Effort Honor Roll. You have to do something special to get these prizes. You have to either open a new account Or make a deposit of $10.00 or more into your account.
Everyday promotions: Every time you come into do a transaction in Kid’s Bank, you are put into the monthly drawing for a prize!
How it Works
Students can open savings accounts at the Grand Openings and on the first Tuesday of every month. You must be with your parent or guardian to open an account. Students can make deposits EVERY bank day to maintain their accounts. You DON’T need a parent to come with you if you are just making deposits into your account.
What kinds of jobs can 5th graders have?
5th graders at Kid’s Bank can have different jobs. Many of the jobs include: Tellers, Bank Officers, Guards, Greeters, Historians (photographers/videographers), and Marketing Teams. All groups are trained before the bank is opened. Part of the marketing team is the writing team/ historians. In marketing, you make posters, create commercials, and pitch them Dr. Fradley. The marketing team also decides on the promotions by studying the amount of Kid’s Bank business we have each month.
