Penny Wars Fundraiser Highest in History; Pi Day Activities

student with pieThe Penny Wars fundraiser brought in the largest amount ever raised for Bald for Bucks. The entire building raised $3,162.40 during a week-long campaign where students in each grade level earned points for their donations. Pennies and paper are “Positive.” Silver “Subtracts!”  Pennies and dollars earned a class a positive point, anything silver (nickels, dimes, quarters) earned a negative point.
Containers were in the front hall before school. Each donation will earned a student an entry to be the lucky student to pie a teacher. Each penny counts as one positive point for a grade level. A dollar bill will count for 100 positive points. Each silver coin counts as negative points for other grade levels. In other words, dropping a quarter in another grade’s bucket subtracts 25 points from their total.
March 14 (3/14/22) was Pi Day at Amherst Middle and several students had their name chosen to "pie" a teacher or the principals.
The sixth grade won with 35,421 points; seventh grade was second with 16,714 and eighth grade was third place with -6,985.
