Our 5th & 6th graders earned $763.53 by "BOMBING" each other in the "Penny Wars!"
On this cart is all of the money we collected from the 5th and 6th graders "bombing" each other!
We tried to see how strong the men were! Mr. Finlayson went first, he srtuggled, but was able to lift one container. Each container weighed 110 pounds!
Mr. Cowley, who regularly lifts weights, tried to lift the entire cart and the coins, but couldn't. He was able to lift two containers, and nearly passed out!
Mr. Beckstrand lifts the full jar.
Our special guest from the Utah Food Bank gladly accepted the money! He had the first 5 rows of students stand up. He said that's how many NEW families came last month to accept food, usually because of a job loss. Thanks 5th & 6th graders for your unselfish contributions!!!
