    Banking Program

    We are pleased to announce that we will be starting Bank Day at Alki beginning this Friday, January 6th, 2017. “Bank days” will continue throughout the year on the FIRST and THIRD Fridays of each month.

    How this works

    On banking days, students will bring their registers and deposits (cash or check) in their banking envelope or other envelope if needed. They can drop it off a the banking table in the main hallway in the morning before school or before going out to morning recess. They can pick up their envelopes in the hallway again after their lunch recess.

    For more information, you can read the full letter below.

    Dear Parents and students of Alki Elementary:

    We are pleased to announce that we will be starting Bank Day at Alki beginning this Friday, January 6th, 2017. “Bank days” will continue throughout the year on the FIRST and THIRD Fridays of each month.

    For those students who were previously signed up with Washington Federal you will be able to continue with banking, and there is no need to fill out the account card unless you have closed that account. If you have your register book and envelope just continue to use them, but if needed new ones will be provided. For students who have not had an account before, but would like to open an account please fill out the account card and put it in an envelope with your deposit. You can start saving on January 6th with a minimum beginning deposit of $ 5.00. Washington Federal will then match that $ 5.00 deposit when you open the account giving you a $10.00 balance! The student’s savings account will earn 0.10% Annual Percentage Yield. To ensure that deposit money is not lost, please always put your money in an envelope.

    We are excited to offer this program to our students to teach them that saving for their future is important, and rewarding. At the current time Steve Noyes will be volunteering his time for getting the banking program restarted and if the program continues to grow we may ask for volunteers to assist.

    How this works: On banking days students will bring their registers and deposits of which can be cash or check in their banking envelope (or other envelope if not available). They can drop it off at the banking table in the main hallway in the morning before school, or before going out to morning recess. They can pick up their envelopes in the hallway again after their lunch recess.

    Thank you, and we look forward to offering this program to our students.
