Have a great week,
P.S. We start Penny Wars tomorrow. All of the money collected is going towards Relay for Life. Our class gets points by collecting pennies. Other classes may attack us with nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar bills. Pennies are positive points and all other money is negative points. This will go on for the month of March. The kids LOVE it.
In addition to the Penny War, classes have a water bottle that may be filled with dimes. If we fill our water bottle with dimes it is about $100 that is donated to relay.
