Hey everyone!! It's that time of year for the Penny Drive! March 18th- April 5th If you are new to the school, the Penny Drive is a 3 week fundraiser where homerooms collect money that will go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society to help children and adults with blood cancers. It's called a "Penny" drive but kids are encouraged to bring any type of change or cash in to donate. The homeroom that donates the most money in the school will receive a special lunch brought to us by Olive Garden! It's always awesome!
