Coin challenge at Dummer School raises money for books
During Book Fair week, H.E. Dummer School held a classroom coin challenge. Each day was designated a certain coin day. The designated coin days were: Monday – penny day, Tuesday – nickel day, Wednesday – dime day, Thursday – quarter day, and Friday – all coins day. At the end of each day, an announcement was made as to which class was in the lead. On the last day, Mrs. Winckler’s fourth-grade class pulled ahead to win with a total of $126.49 collected. Combined, all fourth- and fifth-grade classes collected $773.20. The money will be used to buy new books for the school's classrooms and library. Scholastic matched the amount collected and made a donation to literacy charities such as Kids in Need Foundations, Reader to Reader, Inc. and National Center for Families Learning. Great job, Dummer students!
