THE PENNY BATTLE to lift up Haitian Youth a COIN at a time IS HAPPENING – SEND IN THAT CHANGE!!
Penny Battle
Two tubs will be placed in the courtyard starting March 28. One labeled “TK-4” and one labeled “5-8”. Those will be the teams for the competition. Students will place money in the tubs in order to add or take away points from the teams.
Counting the Points
When students bring in coins they will add the “positive points” coins to the bucket with their grades on it. They will add the “negative points” coins to the other bucket.
The team with the most points at the end of the battle wins! LET’S RAISE FUNDS TO HELP SUPPORT HAITI AND HAVE SOME FUN!
