North Central Bank Field Trip

On Thursday October 3rd the 8th grade students from Mrs. Bazydlo’s Social Studies class were able to take a field trip to North Central Bank in Ladd.   During their visit the students learned more about our banking system, the federal reserve and the importance of being financially responsible during their teen years and into their adult life.  Kim McKee and other staff members at the bank were kind enough to provide the students with a tour of their facilities. The students were intrigued to learn how much of our banking is done completely electronically and how changes in technology are making the different services that the bank provides to its’ customers so accessible.  The field trip provided the students with an opportunity to see first hand how some of the topics that they have learned about during their Consumer Ed. Unit are actually put into practice in the “real world.”
