LMS Bright Futures Bank

Will you have a fourth grade student this year? If so, you might be interested in opening a Bright Futures Bank account for him or her. The Bright Futures Bank is sponsored by Virginia Commonwealth Bank and is a real bank located in Lancaster Middle School for LMS students. The bank is open once a week for children to make deposits and withdrawals. If you're interested in opening an account for your child, VCB representatives will be at LMS during registration on August 14, 2018 from 7 am - 12 pm and on August 15, 2018 from 12 pm - 7 pm to help you open an account. They will need TWO forms of identification for your child. Any two of the three following options are acceptable: photo ID, their social security card and/or their birth certificate. Click here for more information.
