WC students get musical money lesson to encourage saving

Some first-grade students at School 23 in Yonkers were treated to some musical money lessons yesterday to encourage them to start saving at a young age. A manager from the Key Bank on Main Street got each student started in a special program in which they'll learn about saving for college throughout the year, and can even open a bank account.

Students Jariel Ozuna and Ali Thabet both said that the lessons were most important to them because they are looking forward to saving enough to buy a house and get a college education when they are older. The students will also build a cardboard replica of a city, complete with a Main Street, to learn about businesses, jobs and earning money.
