Upper School – September Spirit – Penny War for Cure Childhood Cancer

That is how much money the Upper School collected to donate to Cure Childhood Cancer! Almost $800 of that was in coins.
In honor of September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month the Upper participated in Cure Childhood Cancer September coin drive. But, to make it more fun each grade competed in a Penny War. Every Wednesday students in grades 6 through 8 would bring in their pennies for their class and sabotage money to keep other grades from getting ahead. In the end 7th grade was the winning team with the highest score. But, all were winners for helping to donate so much to such a worthy cause.
