College Saving for Kindergarten Students
Dear Parents of the class of 2030!
Welcome to Greenfield-Central Community Schools! We are excited that your child will attend our school this year for kindergarten. As a kindergartener your child has the opportunity to sign up for the Hancock County Promise. Below is information about the Promise. We will have sign-ups for the Hancock County Promise starting at our registration July 20th from noon-7:00 p.m.. We will also have sign-ups at our Open House on Tuesday, Aug. 1st from 5:00-6:00 and our Meet the Teacher Night on Monday, Aug. 7th from 6:00-7:00.
WHAT IS THE PROMISE?
WE PROMISE TO:
● Help shape the college and career identity of youth so they build hope for the future
● Help families start saving for the future using CollegeChoice 529 accounts
● Bring the county together to become champions for all youth
ACTIVITIES FOR YOUTH & FAMILIES
● Enroll in CollegeChoice 529 accounts at school registration or back-to-school night
● Participate in age appropriate college and career discovery lessons in the classroom
● Experience college at the “Walk Into My Future” field trip to IUPUI
● Invite “champions” to provide encouragement to your child and to make an investment in your child’s CollegeChoice 529 account during the month of October
INCENTIVES AND COMMUNITY MATCHING GIFTS
● Just for completing enrollment in a CollegeChoice 529 at school registration, our sponsors, Hancock Health, NineStar, Greenfield Banking Co., Tyner Pond, and the EMS Group, will make a $25 investment in new accounts of kindergarten students.
● As part of college and career discovery lessons in their classrooms, youth ask their champions to make a gift of $5.29 or more into their 529 college savings account
● Youth who raise $25 or more receive an additional community matching gift
BECOME A CHAMPION
● Champions provide words of encouragement and support for a student’s aspirations and make a gift of $5.29 or more to the student’s CollegeChoice 529 account
