Do you know that you help provide so much more than a standard education to the Lakota boys and girls?
St. Joseph’s eighth graders have been working hard developing the skills needed to maintain a personal checking account. First, they learned about checking account basics and then actually write checks, make deposits, keep records, and reconcile the monthly statement. Special banking services such as pre-authorized payments, wire transfers, mobile banking, making loan payments and ATM transactions are also incorporated.
This not only teaches our students an important aspect of money management, but also develops good habits for the future.
At St. Joseph’s Indian School, we are privileged to work with our students not just during the school day, but after hours as well. When they are not in school, our houseparents care for the children in their campus homes 24 hours per day.
That means that, even when school is out, students are learning important life skills – social skills, caring for themselves and their homes, and more!
Pilamaya – thank you – for your support!
