Panther Cub Bank
This was the 5th year that United Bank and Mary Williams ES partnered together for the Panther Cub Bank.   
Thank you for allowing us to come in and work with the students, it was another successful year:
  • We started with 46 applications, interviewed and hired 26 students and ended the year with 24.
  • The bank was open 18 days, we missed 6 due to weather/fire drills.
  • The tellers took in 138 deposits totaling about $1200
  • We currently have 41 accounts with balances of $100,117.00
  • The winner for most deposits made this year was Sophia Borders
  • The Class with the most students making the most deposits was Ms Ames class
We had wonderful parent helpers, Rita Kervalavich and Melanie Eddy.They ran the marketing department and did an awesome job. They created and produced the commercials that were seen by the students, they had posters and flyers that were hung all over the school, they also created the Thank you card that was sent to Carlos Castro/ Todos Supermarket ( our T-shirt sponsor). We could not have done it without them.
Everyone did an amazing job and we're looking forward to coming back next year.   
Thank you for your support!
