ty, financial literacy has become
an essential life-skill for everyone.
As students demonstrate the dis-
tinct capacity for money manage-
ment, they develop into highly val-

cuniary success. Financial success
benefits the individual person, and
his/her family, state, and nation,
which impacts global economy.
Clearly, Glen Rose Intermediate
School students are learning self-
direction, responsibility, and glob-
al awareness though an innovative
partnership with the local Ameri-
can State Bank. As educators of
21st century learners, Glen Rose
Intermediate teachers and adminis-
trators have embraced the chal-
lenge to develop distinct financial
literacy skills in students. In addi-
tion, the school has developed a
successful partnership with a local
business to promote community
involvement in the school curricu-
la. Together, they have helped
students understand the need for
financial responsibility and the
importance of financial literacy for
success as adults.
