The St. Peter School student council held a penny war competition to raise money for Community Care. Each classroom was challenged to bring in enough pennies to beat the other. At the end, the pennies in each class were added up to see which grade level earned the most. Each classroom had an accessible container. Pennies counted as one point and silver pieces counted as negative points. Students could secretly add silver coins to other class’ containers to lessen their chance of winning. The competition raised $1,327 to buy soup from Marc’s for those in need. The fifth grade collected the most money, but the Pre-Kindergarten won due to sabotage with silver coins.
