‘Captain Cash’

teaches about money

It’s never too early for children to learn how to become eager earners, savvy savers, wise spenders and careful borrowers. The financial literacy program “Captain Cash” engages children in money-smart activities and starts them down the road to financial fitness. The program is an elementary curriculum designed by Purdue Cooperative Extension Service.

Terre Town Elementary School partnered with extension educators and Old National Bank to bring “Captain Cash” into third-grade classrooms. Each student participated in four class sessions, as well as take-home parent newsletters with suggested at-home games and activities that focus on earning, saving, planned spending and wise borrowing of money. Each session introduced money-related vocabulary words and teaches money concepts that are based on Indiana Academic Standards for math and social studies.

Purdue Extension — Vigo County and Old National Bank also partnered to offer the students an opportunity to participate in the Piggy Bank Pageant. Each Terre Town third-grade student decorated a piggy bank to have on display at Old National Bank on Lafayette Avenue. Community members voted by dropping coins in their favorite decorated bank.

To learn more about “Captain Cash” contact Sarah Gaughan or Krista Farthing at 812-462-3371.
