Penny Wars 2018!

Monday, December 3 -
Friday, December 7, 2018

Heads up, West Creek Wolves! From December 3-7, bring your spare change (bills work, too!) and help your grade win the 2018 Penny Wars for Charity! The Penny Wars tables with containers will be set up during recess near the entrance to the play yard. Help your grade win the The Penny Wars while making a world of difference!

Money from Penny Wars will be donated to the Hurricane Florence emergency fund administered by Jones County Public Schools in eastern North Carolina. This rural district lost two public schools, Trenton Elementary and Jones Middle School, to the September storm.  In addition, many of the displaced students also became homeless at that time and are living in shelters.  The emergency fund provides necessities to the children and equipment to various schools in the district that have taken in students until a replacement school can be built.

  • Tables with containers will be set out during recess near the entrance to the yard.
  • Each penny counts as one positive point for YOUR grade. Put PENNIES in YOUR GRADE'S container.
  • Each silver coin or bill counts as negative points for OTHER grades. Put nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollar bills in OTHER TEAMS' containers.
  • We will count and tally points each day and make announcements each day letting the students know which grades are leading, all change/points will be tallied and the grade with the most points will win a special surprise!
