The First State Bank team is pleased to announce the donation of $200 to the North Adams Elementary Accelerated Reading Program. The contribution towards the program was made at North Adams Elementary School on Oct. 29.
The check was presented by Mike Pell, President and CEO of First State Bank and Bethany Pistole, Manager of the Winchester Banking Center to Jane Hughes, the Director of the Accelerated Reading Program, Principal Marla Young and Assistant Principal Deirdre Mills.
More than 500 area children participate in the program through the school year. Students read books and then take tests to pass each reading level. For each book they read, the students receive points. Points can then be redeemed at the North Adams School store. The contribution from First State Bank will be towards the purchase of items for the store.
“We are a locally owned community bank and supporting our local schools is very important to us,” said Mike Pell from First State Bank. “Reading is such an important part of learning and we are excited to contribute to such a great program for our local students,” said Pell.
