Coin A Day Challenge!
From February 25th – March 4th our school is participating in a grade-level coin drive called the Coin-a-Day Challenge. Each day represents a different type of coin. The grade that collects the highest overall total will receive a Creation Station/Technology party with Mrs. Vieira.
If you have loose coins hiding under couch cushions, floor mats, in pants pockets, or the bottom of your bag, put them to good use by giving students more access to books they’ll want to read! Our school will use the donations to purchase books from our book fair for school libraries and families in our community in need. This means the money goes right back into our fair, our school, and we get to help others. It’s a win-win! Plus, the Scholastic Possible Fund matches every donation, up to $1 million in books, received through the program and distributes them to children in need through organizations such as Kids In Need Foundation, Reader to Reader, Inc., and the National Center for Families Learning.
Your child has a special bag attached to a note coming home today or tomorrow to help bring in his/her coins.
Here’s the schedule:
- Penny Day is Tuesday, February 25th: Pluck all those pennies you can find!
- Nickel Day is Wednesday, February 26th: Search all over and ask nicely for nickels!
- Dime Day is Monday, March 2nd: Double check the couch cushions for dimes!
- Quarter Day is Tuesday, March 3rd: Quickly find those quarters and bring them in!
- Any Coin Day is Wednesday, March 4th: Bring in any donation you can. Every coin/dollars means we get to help kids get books to read and supports our school’s book fair!
Thank you in advance for supporting our Coin-a-Day Challenge. It’s an easy way to provide books to children who otherwise could not afford them, gives kids access to books they want to read through classroom libraries, cultivates in children a love of reading and a love of helping others and reinforces that literacy is a priority for schools, families, and communities.
Have a great day!
