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.
