Do you want to win books for your class? Suggest books for Ms. Noonan to pick for our library? Help give children in our community their first books? Then get ready for the
Classroom Coin Challenge!
Monday, April 13 – Thursday, April 16
Bring your loose change to your class next week and compete to see which homeroom can raise the most money!
The winning class will get to come to the Book Fair with their teacher the week of April 20th and use some of the funds raised to pick out books for their class and make some suggestions to Ms. Noonan for books for her to pick out for our library. Should we get more mystery books? More sports books? You get to decide! These books will get a bookplate honoring the winning class.
Students will also help to select books that our school will donate to Parenthesis Family Center–a local group that provides a variety of programs to families with young children. In addition, Scholastic Books will match our monetary donation by giving books to two non-profit organizations, Kids in Need Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations, Inc. These organizations help schools and libraries in both impoverished areas and areas destroyed by natural disasters, such as the Oklahoma and Missouri cities affected by recent years’ tornados.
NO FOREIGN COINS, PLEASE
