Learning Center staff invites their families, neighbors and friends to
participate in a Penny War, with all proceeds to benefit the Sheboygan
Park Project. The Early Learning Center is a proud supporter of the
Sheboygan Park Project.
The fundraiser is part of a
joint effort being led by community members to design and build a
universally accessible playground at the lakefront of Sheboygan. The
playground will allow all children, regardless of ability, to play side
by side. Also there will be no barriers preventing adults with
disabilities from enjoying playtime with their children.
Penny War encourages ELC students and their families to donate their
loose change that will be collected by each teacher. Classes will
compete to see who can raise the most money and the winning class will
be awarded a celebration party in May.
The goal is
to have the Early Learning Center permanently recognized at the
playground. Through funds raised in the penny war, the school will
purchase fence pickets that are engraved with the following: Early
Learning Center, Classes of 2008-2009.
The Penny War takes place now until May 29.
The children will enjoy watching their classroom collections grow, knowing that together we can make a difference.
