Penny Wars coming

Enc. Homecoming tradition to raise money for medical fund


Encampment K-12 School has announced that it will again be holding “Penny Wars” this year as part of the school’s homecoming week celebration.

The fundraiser, which collects money for the Encampment Medical Fund, gives every class at the school buckets to collect pennies and folding money. Pennies and paper money are considered “Positive” and cause classes to accumulate points.

However, classes can sabotage one another by placing nickels, dimes and quarters into other classes’ buckets. The value of money from silver coins is considered “negative” and takes away from a class’ totals. The winner of the event is the class that has the most positive points.

Penny Wars will start at the Encampment School Jan. 2, and will end 8 a.m. Jan. 4. The winning class will be recognized at the homecoming pep assembly at 2:30, Jan. 5.

The student council has set $1,000 as the goal this year.

The Encampment school is asking parents to help by reminding their children to collect and save pennies for the fundraiser.
