Weatherstone Elementary Penny War! January 30th – February 8th
Put your spare change toward a great cause. All proceeds from our Penny War fundraiser will go towards supporting Weatherstone Elementary.
The students are so excited about our penny war. We've already raised over $600 for our school! Current grade level standings are 1st place- 5th grade, 2nd place- 2nd grade, 3rd place-4th grade, 4th place-K, 5th place-3rd grade, 6th place-1st grade. 1st place wins a pizza party for their grade. Follow the WES PTA on Facebook or Twitter (@WeatherstonePTA) for updates during the week.
Pennies are “positive.” Here’s how it works:
- Containers will be located in the school lobby during arrival
- Each penny counts as one positive point for YOUR grade level
- Each silver coin counts as negative points for OTHER grade levels. In other words, dropping any money other than a penny (including dollars) in another grade level’s bucket takes points from their total
- For example, dropping a quarter in another grade levels bucket will deduct 25 points from their total
- At the end of the STEM Carnival on February 8th, all change/points will be tallied and the grade with the most points will win a pizza party
