Endeavour Elementary PTSA has partnered with a local branch of Washington Federal to bring the "Save at School" program to Endeavour students.  This is a regular, on-site banking program which allows students to open a bank account and regularly make deposits to our volunteer bank tellers at school during Student Banking Days. 

To get started, complete the account form and turn it into the school office (Attn: Student Banking) with the opening deposit of $5. A register book and deposit envelope will then be sent home with your child. If you are a returning “Save at School” student, just bring your book and your deposit with you on Student Banking Days, on the 1st TUESDAY of each month (please check the PTSA calendar for any changes due to holidays) Our volunteer bank tellers will be at a table outside the lunchroom during your lunchtime on these days so you can drop your deposit by and receive a prize!

  • Minimum $5 deposit to open an account.
  • Washington Federal will add another $5 to each brand new account!
  • Your child can make deposits at school on designated “Banking Days.”
  • No fees, no minimum balance to earn interest.
  • School accounts earn a healthy 0.15% Annual Percentage Yield. (This variable rate can change after the account is  opened.)
  • Students can keep track of their deposits with register books and reusable envelopes Washington Federal provides.
  • Parents receive quarterly statements by mail.
  • Withdrawals must be made in person at a branch.
  • Bank with Washington Federal at over 160 locations in eight western states.

Washington Federal has been helping neighbors save for the future since they were founded nearly a century ago. Again this year, they’re ready to help teach your child how to save money with a “Save at School” account.
