Through Burlington's Adopt-A-Class program, Reading Cooperative Bank has signed on as corporate sponsor of the fourth grade class (Class of 2023). Jack Ferren, Vice-President, and Ryan Wolters, who manages the Burlington branch of the bank, visited the class yesterday and led the students through a lesson on personal finances, beginning with distinguishing needs and wants. Students were challenged to come up with a plan to acquire a pet hamster and the necessary supplies to care for it, given a limited budget.Afterwards, each student received a piggy bank. Mr. Ferren and Mr. Wolters encouraged them to continue or begin a habit of saving. The bank has set up a fundraiser for the class as well (info below).

The BPS EdTech Team is excited to announce our next Tech Savvy Parenting night, “Branching Out with STEM.” This is the third installment of our Digital Bootcamp Series and this time our focus is on STEM – science, technology, engineering and math.
Members of the BPS EdTech Team, along with BHS Help Desk students, will provide parents and their children with information about the current state and future trends of STEM, including opportunities for young women. Parents will receive an overview of the K-12 STEM curriculum offered in Burlington and learn about potential college majors and STEM related career paths. We will also provide a list of FREE resources designed to keep children of all ages engaged in STEM activities year round. The evening will conclude with hands-on Hour of Code activities for the entire family. Parents and students will select from a variety of free coding tutorials and explore the basics of computer programming with support from the BPS EdTech Team and BHS Help Desk students.
