Cleveland & Montessori Penny Wars for 'Dollar Makes a Difference Day'
The students at Cleveland Elementary School and NEW Montessori School participated in a penny war from May 10- 14 and raised $700 for a local family as part of the ‘Dollar Makes a Difference Day.'
Each class had a milk jug by the school office labeled with their teacher's name. One positive cent was earned for each penny deposited into the class milk jug and one positive dollar was recorded for each paper dollar into the class jug. Any silver coins were counted as negative money for the class. The friendly competition of the game was to deposit all their silver coins in the other classroom's milk jugs and to put the pennies and bills in their own milk jug.
At the end of the week, the winning class with the most "positive" money in their jug was the 4-year-old kindergarten class.
