Coin Wars

Message from Student Council:

The Marie Murphy coin wars is a friendly fundraiser competition between first period classes with the goal of raising the most money for charity. Every cent from a coin placed in your class's jar is worth one point. Every cent from a bill is 1 negative point!


Remember, coins are positive, bills are negative. The class that gets the most points in the entire school gets a pizza party. The grade that gets the most points gets a donut party.


Coin Wars begins after Thanksgiving break and it goes until January.

Winter Gear Reminder

We plan to go outside everyday for recess unless it is below 15 degrees. Students should dress for the weather and bring:
  • Jacket
  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Boots
  • Snow pants (optional)


If a student is not dressed appropriately for the weather we will have them remain inside.
Last Call! Cooking and Financial Literacy Clubs!
