Mission 2 Save Program starts this Wednesday!

Salt Creek is one of only 47 schools in the San Diego County to have a partnership with Mission Federal Credit Union, and Mission 2 Save is just one of the ways that our students and families can benefit.  You can open up a Savings Account for your child and they can learn financial literacy by applying savings habits early in life.  Students can make deposits on campus every Wednesday before school.  We also need one parent volunteer each Wednesday morning to help MFCU staff collect deposits and distribute prizes.  If you can help, just let us know!  To download the application for an account, click here:  Salt Creek + Mission Fed M2$ Flyer
