Thanks to a district grant from Great-West Financial there is a new focus on improving the financial literacy of students in Englewood, but also on investing in the financial literacy of everyone that works within Englewood schools. 
All teachers and district employees are invited to attend a one-day workshop on personal financial literacy.  The workshop will be held at EMS from 8:30 – 3:30 on Monday, June 16.  Attendees will have the opportunity to earn extra duty pay and relicensure credit.  During the workshop you will be able to choose four different one-hour sessions on various financial topics that are most relevant to your life situation.  Topics include Investing & Retirement Planning, Understanding your PERA Benefits, Budgeting, Insurance, Paying for College and Goal Setting.  Sessions are guaranteed to be hands-on so you will walk away from the day feeling like you have taken real steps towards improving your financial confidence and well being.   
The workshop will continue throughout the rest of the week with 2-day sessions held at Maddox for elementary teachers (June 17-18) and middle/high school teachers (June 18–19) focusing on resources and support in integrating financial literacy in the classroom as now required by Colorado Academic Standards.  See this flyer for more details and how to register online.  Space is limited to 45, so register soon!  Don’t hesitate to contact Heather Greenwood, Financial Literacy Coordinator with any questions.

The tournament will be on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at Saddle Rock Golf Course. It's $125 for an individual golfer, $500 for a foursome. Visit the Rotary Club of Englewood's website for more information on how to register.
