Penny Wars March 1st-March 4th

Attributions: 

To raise money for the student council, students at Maple Ridge will be able to participate in the Penny Wars.  Each grade level will have a jar in front of the offices before school from 8:35-8:55.  Students can put in pennies to count as points for their grade level, but students from OTHER grades can counteract those points with silver change and/or dollar bills.  The winning grade level will get a game/rootbeer float party.
