Prior PTA General Meeting Minutes:


Middleburg Bank - Aldrin Branch Open Every Thursday Morning!!!

The re-opening of the student run bank on October 22nd was a great success. The bank is giving leadership opportunities to 6th graders who are acting as tellers, bank managers, and bank marketing specialists. The bank will be open every Thursday morning in the school lobby from 8:50 - 9:20 and students can deposit as little as $1 each week into their savings account. New accounts can be open each week during that time as well. Middleburg Bank will match up to $5 in each new student account. We hope you can visit the bank and support our student bankers!
