March 7, 2012
DES MOINES, Iowa – State Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald is offering free pencils to schools across Iowa for use in Kindergarten Round-Up through the Prepare for the Basics program. “Our schools know inviting families to check out their school six months before the school year begins will help kindergarteners prepare for their big transition,” Fitzgerald said. “We offer the pencils as a small gesture of support for our schools.” In addition to the pencil, this free program will provide information about College Savings Iowa, the state-sponsored 529 plan created to help Iowa families meet the increasing costs of higher education.
