Sunny Bank is a bank run by 4th grade students who apply and interview for positions. Students working for Sunny Bank are responsible for marketing, customer service, teller positions, and security. Although the bank is set up for students, parents with an Amarillo National Bank account are welcome to make deposits at our branch. Withdrawals of money must be done at other branches of the bank, outside of school.
