From Monday, September 14th – Friday, September 18th
Second grade has won three years in a row! Will their strategy work again this year? Which grade will REIGN for the 2015-2016 school year & bring in the most money for Bells Ferry PTA and the kids?
Rules are simple:
For every penny and bill donated, you get positive points for the value of the penny or bill (Every penny adds 1 point; Every $1 bill adds 100 points; Every $5 bill adds 500 points, and so forth).
Every coin other than a penny gets negative points. So a nickel would be worth negative 5 points; a dime would be negative 10 points, and a quarter would be negative 25 points. You can even put in a $1 coin to get negative 100 points. Can you see how this can be used to your advantage? To spell it out, if you put coins other than pennies in the other grade bottles, you will cause their point value to go down. Cha-ching for your grade… but watch out, they may be doing the same to you.
Stop by the front lobby/hallway in the morning between 7:15am – 7:50am from Monday, September 14th until Friday, September 18th to make your play. Scoreboards will be updated daily to see which grade is in the lead.
Let the Games Begin!!! The winning grade will get a “Donuts” recess celebration along with the bragging rights.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This year, a portion of the Penny Wars proceeds will be donated to CURE Childhood Cancer in memory of Lake Bozman.
