Sikorsky Credit Union Interns Lead Financial Literacy Project for Kindergartners

STRATFORD, CT – Sikorsky Credit Union’s high school interns taught local kindergarteners about financial literacy through the construction of moonjars.

The Credit Union regularly partners with the Town of Stratford to contribute to their educational programs. This year, in addition to their previous donation of $1,200 towards the purchase of moonjars, a hands-on financial education craft, Sikorsky Credit Union dispatched some of their high school interns to teach kindergarteners a valuable lesson of saving, spending, and sharing, utilizing the educational craft.

Five high school interns from Sikorsky Credit Union went to four Stratford elementary schools and visited with their kindergarten classes, giving them a full lesson on financial literacy with some assistance from their teachers and credit union staff.

Keri Paradis, a kindergarten teacher at Franklin Elementary School commented, “The Franklin kindergarten classes loved working with Sikorsky Credit Union’s intern team for our moonjar financial literacy activity. They presented our students with a fun and educational exercise after reading to them that allowed them to think about financial literacy on their level.”

“Every age benefits from developing good financial habits,” stated Dan Ruskin of Sikorsky Credit Union. “The interns did a fantastic job, and everyone is happy with how it turned out. I’m very proud of them.”

Raissa Karim, a senior at Stratford High School who was involved in all four of the kindergarten presentations says, “I had such a good time working with the kids. As a high school senior, I know how fast money can go. I hope this is something they will remember for a very long time.”

Throughout the school year, Sikorsky Credit Union conducts financial literacy presentations, demonstrations, and activities in multiple local communities including Ansonia, Danbury, Oxford, Seymour, Shelton, and Stratford.
