Twisted Penny - Sept 11-22


Twisted Penny Drive is the most unique fundraiser of the year!

Beginning on Monday, September 11 until September 22, you’ll find containers sitting outside the office labeled with your teacher’s name.

The twisted penny is a fun classroom competition to raise funds for our Specials Departments.  This year, the funds raised will go to the Music & Spanish Departments! The competition has a daily classroom winner and an assortment of prizes are awarded to the classes over the next two weeks. 

All pennies and paper money (checks included) is counted towards your teacher’s daily total, with the twist coming when you load up the other jugs with any silver coins, (nickels, dimes and quarters). All silver is counted against that teacher’s total amount. Please make checks payable to Excel PTO.

There will be great daily incentives and winners so keep your class amounts climbing by putting in pennies and dollars in your teacher’s jug.

Remember though, the twist is to put silver in other jars which goes against that class total!

Help you child dig up as many pennies as you can find, and if those are in short supply any form of cash/check will help your child's class in the quest to become the twisted penny champions!   Remember - Every $10 in donations equals ONE volunteer hour!

FYI the reigning twisted penny champion is Mrs. Coffey' class! Can her class hold onto the trophy?  Will their be a new champion? Only pennies will tell! See the the daily class prizes on the side bar.
