Brooks Elementary Penny Challenge Results!

5/9/2014.


The results are in - Mrs. Tarquinio’s class won the most points with 723. Miss Lamb’s class earned the most money with $214.38. Total amount raised was $1,242, which will benefit Animal Friends and Children's Hospital Oakland.

Brooks Student Council sponsored a Penny Challenge from now until April 15, 2014.  Classes competed against each other to see who can get the most points during the seven day contest.

Containers with each homeroom teacher’s name on it were placed outside of the library from 8:15 to 8:35 a.m.  Students put pennies into their own homeroom’s container; however, they can put silver coins and/or dollars into the other classrooms’ containers.  Scoring is as follows: 
  • Each penny is worth one point.
  • Each silver coin or bill deducts points from the container by amount of the coin (a nickel reduces five points; a dime reduces ten, etc.).
  • Containers will be emptied daily and an announcement of progress will be made every other day.
  • The winner is determined by points at the end of the seven days; however, the class room with the most money will receive an award.
Money raised during the Penny Challenge will be donated to Animal Friends and the Pennies from Heaven Fund.  Animal Friends is an organization that helps animals in need.  A Kind Kids donation will allow Brooks to name a pet and have the group’s name on its kennel cage.  The donations will assist in providing vaccinations, flea preventative, microchip, spay/neuter surgery and/or daily care that an animal needs to be ready to go to its forever home.

The Pennies from Heaven Fund is through Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and it helps to ease financial hardships for parents so that they are able to stay with their children in the hospital.  The donations will assist in transportation, food, sibling care, or other expenses.
