School Banking - First National

Mon, 10/26/2015 - 10:22am

We are very excited about our in-school banking partnership with First National Bank.  Through this partnership, students will learn more about financial literacy and the importance of saving money.  All students will have the opportunity to make monthly deposits right at Northfield.  No amount of money is too small.  Fifth grade students will have the opportunity to be NES Bank Tellers and will help students to make their deposits.  Mrs.Calamari and First National Bank representatives will also be present to assist students through the process.  For more information, please see the attached letter below or email Mrs. Calamari at


School banking will take place at 8:25 AM in the front lobby on the following days:

September 25th
October 30th
November 27th
December 18th
January 29th
February 26th
March 26th
April 30th
May 28th
June 11th


If you would like your child to participate in our in-school banking program, you have a couple options for opening up a student account.  You can open up an account at the First National Bank in Ellicott City or Columbia during their normal business hours.  If you would like to set-up an account at school, banking representatives will be available to assist you during any of our banking days at 8:25 AM at Northfield. Students must have a parent with them in order to open up an account.  If a student already has an account, a parent does not need to be present for the student to make a deposit at school.  We will have banking representatives and staff members available to help them make the deposit.  Please let them know that you are interested in opening up a student account for the Northfield Elementary In-School Banking program.  These are real bank accounts and do not have a minimum balance.  

To expedite the application process, you can download an application here and bring it with you to open the account.
