Penny Wars profits help Hurricane Harvey relief

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 by Samantha Anderson sanderson@tnonline.com in School

Northampton Area Middle School held a Penny Wars fundraiser Sept. 13-27. According to eighth-grade teacher Renee Horwath, department teams competed to see who could raise the most pennies.

Each penny was worth one point, and the team with the most points won; however, teams had the opportunity to sabotage their opposition by adding other coins and paper money to the collection containers. The value of the silver and paper money was deducted from the penny points. For example, a quarter counted as negative 25 points.

The students raised roughly $1,760 themselves. Together, with contributions from the teachers’ jeans days — which allowed teachers to wear jeans on Fridays with a $5 donation — the school raised a total of approximately $2,300. The money will be sent to C.E. King Middle School in Houston, Texas, which was affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Team Hercules, comprised of the science department teachers and their homerooms, was led to victory by sixth-grade teacher Scott Oste. The winning students were rewarded with a kickball tournament held Oct. 17-19.
