THE PENNY HARVEST HAS BEGUN!

The Penny Harvest is an opportunity for our school to raise money for and provide awareness of community and global issues.  Students are given sacks to collect as many pennies as they can, and then combine those pennies with those of their classmates.  Our school has a goal set for at least 50 sacks of pennies to be collected (which equals 1,500 pounds of pennies, and over $2,000!).  The classes that bring in the most pennies work together to create a service-learning project in which they can donate the money collected.  They also receive a pizza party to celebrate their giving!

Projects in the past include shopping for a food pantry, organizing pet supplies for a local animal shelter and donating money to schools in Haiti and Zimbabwe.  The classes are currently participating in a competition to bring in the most pennies, and you will soon see the results when we begin our weekly weigh-in of pennies and chart them on the graph across from the main office.   The Harvest runs until after Thanksgiving.

Last year, our school was named a Penny Harvest School of Excellence, and we raised approximately $2,500.

How can you help?

*Help your child sort pennies from change jars or around the house
*Inform neighbors and ask them to donate their pennies
*Keep a jar at work to help collect pennies from your co-workers (here’s a sign for your jar: THE PENNY HARVEST Jar Sign 2014-2015)
*Remind students that the pennies they collect with help other people/places in need
*Bring in your change (pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollars will do!)
