Cashing 'checks'

The Thrifty City program is one that all third graders go through at Lake Hamilton, where students learn how to earn a paycheck, budget money and how to properly endorse a check. Students must find a job working at home, such as doing extra chores, and the student's parents send a note to the teacher when their job is complete. Teachers then issue the children a paycheck, and teach the students how to budget their funds and manage needs versus wants.
