It's that time of year for the Penny Drive! March 2nd - March 20th. The Penny Drive is a 3 week fundraiser where homerooms/ classrooms 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. Student Council has delivered the boxes to your homeroom. We also gave each classroom a poster to keep track of the money that you raise. You can set a goal as a class. The homeroom that donates the most money in the school will be awarded with lunch. Mrs. Droge's room is currently in the lead!!
