Penny Wars - Oct. 8th
We will be running Penny Wars through the remainder of October. It's Girls Vs Boys. Here are the rules: We will have 2 jars set up (one for the boys and one for the girls). Pennies add points to your team, so put all your pennies in jar for your team. Silver coins & dollars subtract points, so put those in your opponent's jar. At the end of the month we will count it up and determine a winner. The winning team will get an awesome prize. This is the first of our "kids helping kids" fundraiser. All monies collected will go to support the children at the mission in Liberia.
