Penny Wars!

Penny Wars are in full swing at the middle school and classes are bombing and sabotaging like crazy!! Each year at the beginning of December I put on our annual Penny Wars. Actually, our Student Council does, but I'm their fearless leader (ha!). If any of you are looking for an AMAZING fundraiser then this is it. Last year we earned $1700 in two weeks with a student body of 312 students. I was amazed! All our earnings go towards families in our school for Christmas. We buy gift cards to our local grocery store and Alco. Such an awesome experience!! 

 Here is how it works 
-Pennies count FOR your class 
-Silver and bills count AGAINST your class
-Which ever class ends up with the most money wins
-I count money EVERY day and my fingers end up black by the end

Pretty simple, huh? Our Penny Wars this year will end next week. I don't think we are going to earn as much as $1700, but we are doing pretty dang awesome. I will let you know the outcome!
