Patriot Program Rewards Civic Knowledge and Patriotism

Civics Program Support Now Reaching 24 Local Schools

We understand the importance of informed, active citizens. To this end, the Patriot Programs offered by many of Harford County’s public schools help students learn about their country. Each school’s program is voluntary, teaching national and state geographic facts, patriotism, and our history. The Patriot Program grows students’ sense of citizenship and pride in our shared American heritage.

For years we have underwritten the materials used to reward Patriot Program graduates. We have added several schools over the last few years, and our support now extends to 24 Harford County schools! Schools supported include the following:

  • Bakerfield Elementary
  • Bel Air elementary
  • Church Creek Elementary
  • Churchville Elementary
  • Dublin Elementary
  • Edgewood Elementary
  • Emmorton Elementary
  • Forest Hill
  • Forest Lakes Elementary
  • Fountain Green
  • Havre De Grace Elementary
  • Hickory Elementary
  • Homestead Wakefield Elementary
  • Joppatowne Elementary
  • Meadowvale Elementary

  • North Harford Elementary
  • Prospect Mill Elementary
  • Red Pump Elementary
  • Ring Factory Elementary
  • Roye Williams Elementary
  • William Paca Elementary
  • William S James Elementary

We look forward to continuing and growing our support of this great program in 2017. If you would like to discuss support for your school’s Patriot Program, please contact our Marketing Department, at [email protected].

 

Supporting Financial Literacy Through Hands-On Education

Aberdeen 5th Graders Heading to Biz Town This Month

We’re pleased to once again provide funding for students to participate in Junior Achievement’s Biz Town!  A group of fifth-grade students from Aberdeen’s Halls Cross Roads Elementary will be heading to Owings Mills on March 18 to take part in this unique learning opportunity.
Junior Achievement teaches financial literacy through fun, hands-on activities. Biz Town creates a mock city with students filling the role of mayor and other city leaders, giving them the chance to see the financial tasks and responsibilities that come with those roles.
To learn more about Junior Achievement and their role in teaching financial literacy to kids throughout Maryland, check out the Junior Achievement of Central Maryland web site.
