Mrs. Hays' Class

Gateway Elementary had a little friendly competition for a good cause for its’ latest service project. 
Students brought pennies to put in classroom containers for their class to raise money for the Rainbow Room.  Students could also bring in other coins and dollars to “sabotage” other classroom’s containers.  All the pennies were added up for each class and the other coins and paper money were subtracted from the penny total to determine the points for the Penny War Champion.  Through the generosity of students, staff, and families the Penny Wars raised $1147.21 for the Rainbow Room.  Staff volunteers went out and were able to purchase everything on 3 girls' Christmas lists! After shopping for the Rainbow Room kids they adopted, they had $705 leftover to donate to the Rainbow Room to help cover their expenses throughout the year. 

Mrs. Cole’s 1st-grade class brought in the most money at $188.43  and will get a cookie party for their efforts. 

The Penny War Champion with the most points was Mrs. Hays’ 2
nd-grade class and they will get a pizza party.   Way to go Little Bulldogs for giving back to the community!
