PENNY WARS FOR WELCH AND TEAM IPEF… Please support Team IPEF and Welch in raising money with a PENNY WAR! Each grade level will have their own jug for collecting money— jugs will be in the LMC. Students can GAIN points to their grade level by adding pennies and bills and LOWER other grade level totals by adding silver coins to their jugs. Points are calculated as follows:

Pennies +1 point
$1 + 100 points
$5 + 500 points
$10 + 1000 points
$20 + 2000 points
Nickels - 5 points
Dimes - 10 points
Quarter - 25 points

The grade with the most “points” at the end of each week wins a prize! 2nd week prize = Pizza Party!

If you would like to volunteer, please send an email to (Lynn Domek, LMC Director) with dates and times you are available - and if you prefer checking in/shelving books or working with small groups of students in the Makerspace.
