Ribbon Cutting-Smoketree Junior Bank

Smoketree Junior Bank
2395 Smoketree Ave

Mohave State Bank bankers provide monthly financial literacy classes to every 5th and 6th grade Smoketree Elementary student throughout the school year. The bankers follow up the teaching with the Junior Bank, which is open once a month before school and is run by a team of twelve 5th and 6th grade students. The “junior bankers” were selected by writing an essay about the importance of saving money and why they wanted to help run the bank. The Smoketree Junior Bank is in its second year of operation. The Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors held a ribbon cutting for the Smoketree Junior Bank. For more information contact Smoketree School at 505-6020
