LMS School Bank 2018-19

Will you have a middle school 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.

LMS Stellar Students

LMS Bank Winners

Virginia Commonwealth and LMS Bank awarded their top depositors for the first semester. The students pictured below had the most deposits this fall. The top three depositors each got $50 to deposit in their accounts today. The second place finishers all got $25 to deposit. 

The contest starts up again this week. If your child has an account they are automatically entered. The amount of the deposit doesn't matter, they just need to make a deposit every week to win! Contact Brenda Pittman at LMS if you're interested in opening an account for your child.
