Welcome Kit & Activity Report
Are Coming in November!
In November K2C families will receive welcome kits and activity reports mailed to their home address instead of receiving them from schools. Welcome kits will be sent to all new K-10 students in the district. Activity reports will be sent to current SFUSD students who already have a K2C account. Look for them in your mailbox!
October is National Financial Planning Month

Financial Planning Month reminds us to keep our spending in check and prepare our budgets. It’s a great time to plan your family’s financial future – think about what your current situation in 2020 is and what you could do in 2021. You might want to do something new; you may want to do some things differently and consider how you’re saving for your child’s future.

Scholarships Awarded with SF Public Library & K2C!
We are proud to announce the SF Public Library and K2C have established a new partnership to award contributions to eligible Youth Engaged in Library Leadership (YELL) teen interns. This summer 10-12th graders attended working sessions, collaborated on content creation for STEM tutorials or technology tools for seniors and developed additional leadership skills. They also attended a workshop on financial literacy, explored reading lists on topics of interest and either created or refined their resumes with the database Brainfuse. 
 
Tenth grade students who successfully completed this program and elected to receive their $500 dollar contribution deposited in their K2C savings account for college. Check out the STEM videos here.

Trick or Treat Savings for College!
Have you made your plans for Halloween? We know this will be a different Halloween year for sure, but it is also an opportunity to make your trick or treat saving for college an event! Ask your friends and family to make a deposit into your child’s K2C account instead of candy. Or hand out coins yourself to trick or treaters. Stick coins to this handy K2C trick or treat sheet. Do not know your K2C account? Find it here.
