Minitropolis: Talon Town
Talon Town is part of IBC Bank’s “Minitropolis” program, which gives Escandon students an opportunity to develop financial literacy skills in a real-life setting. The name Talon Town was developed and voted on by the first team of Commissioners at Escandon.
Through this program, our students become aware and knowledgeable of what financial interactions consist of. Students learn how to earn, count, save, and spend their “Beak Bucks” (money) wisely.
Talon Town is led by a committee of student Commissioners, who make school-wide decisions, regarding important events for students within our school. The Talon Town Commissioners campaign for office, and are elected by the Escandon student body based on their ability to be positive role models.
