Penny Wars are on!

COLLECT ALL YOUR LOOSE CHANGE TO HELP YOUR GRADE WIN THE PENNY WAR!!!

pennies

What is a Penny war?  Each grade will receive a jar to represent them in the cafeteria.  The goal is to have the most POSITIVE points in your grade’s jar at the end of Penny Wars.  To gain points for your grade put as many pennies as you can find into your jar!  To sabotage the other grades, stuff as many silver coins or dollars as you can into their jar!  The grade with the most positive points will wins!!

 

How do you get points?  Each penny is worth a point. All other coins are worth negative points.  In the Penny Wars a quarter is worth a Negative 25 points.  An example would be if your grade has 100 pennies and one quarter than you would have a total of 75 points.

What is everything worth?

 

1 penny= +1 point      1 nickel= -5 points   1 dime= -10 points

 

1 quarter= -25 points    1 dollar= -100 points   5 dollars= -500 points

 

10 dollars= -1000 points     20 dollars = -2000 points

 

So dig in your couches, check under the car seats and bring in your change from 3/1 -3/31! Jars are in the cafeteria during lunches!

 

All proceeds benefit NMS-PTSG
