Empowerment in Finance: Dollar Dog Day at SANY

Dollar Dog from Empower Teaches Syracuse Academy of Science 2ng Graders Financial Responsibility

Thursday, April 11th, 2024: Did you know National Teach Children to Save Day was on April 25th?

Since Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School was on Spring Break, the school celebrated with Dollar Dog Day on Thursday, April 11th. Julie Murad-Caruso from Empower and Dollar Dog spoke with second graders about saving, spending, and sharing money! Scholars were active participants in the discussion, stating that we save money to buy a house and that we can share money by giving to people in need!

Dollar Dog stuck around for some pictures and to give a water bottle to every 2nd grader. Thanks, Empower, for stopping by!
