What is a Penny War?
A Penny War is a fundraiser that is a lot of fun. The grade level that collects the most pennies in one jug is the winner. HOWEVER, if your jug is really full, other grade levels can put paper or silver money in your jug and exchange it for the pennies. Then your jug has less pennies. If you put a dollar in another jug, they lose 100 pennies. Put in a quarter and they lose 25 cents. By giving other grade levels paper and silver money you decrease their amount of pennies. BUT beware, they can do it to you too!

At the end of the fundraiser, all the pennies will be tallied and the grade level with the most pennies will win a prize fashioned for their grade level.

All money contributed goes back to the school!

The fundraiser begins Monday, March 25 and goes to April 25.
