Student Council is sponsoring a school wide “penny competition”. The object of the game is for your child’s homeroom to collect the most points. Each penny your child brings is worth one point towards their class total. Your child can choose to put silver coins and paper money into another homeroom’s jar to take a point away from their total. Each silver coin or paper bill will deduct one point from that classroom’s total. Money will be counted and totaled at the end of the week. The top class will earn a special prize.
The money earned will be donated to schools that were affected by Hurricane Sandy through the “Literacy Lifeboats” initiative. Here is a website with more information. http://readingandwritingproject.com/literacy-lifeboats
