    We're kicking of our Penny Harvest early this year! Start gathering your pennies! Your teacher will be collecting them throughout the months of October, November, and December. Our goal this year is to fill 25 sacks so that we can participate in a rountable (which will allow us to choose which charity to donate to).

    Although the Penny Harvest focuses on pennies, all donations of silver and cash will count towards our 25 sack goal.

    Check into our "Peek into Penny Harvest" board in the cafeteria to see how we are doing!

    Check out

    Together, we can build a caring community!
