2017-2018 School Information

Welcome Back! School starts on Tuesday, August 29th for students. It will be closed on Friday, Sept. 1st and Monday, Sept. 4th.


May the best Grade win….


Penny Wars is the only fundraiser the school will conduct this year. 100% of monies raised will go toward defraying costs from field trips and activities during the school year.


Here’s how it works:

This is a friendly competition between Grades. The object is to get as many points as possible during the "war" which lasts from Monday, September 18 through Friday, September 22.

---Each grade level will have a large sealed container.

---Students from each grade put their pennies in their grades' container. One point is received for every penny in the container.

---Now, here’s where it gets fun….students may put silver coins and paper currency into the containers of OTHER grades. Each silver coin or bill reduces the number of points from that container by the amount of the coin. (e.g. a nickel reduces the points by five, a dime by ten, a dollar by 100, etc...) This is where strategy counts.  Checks to Lunenburg PTO are also accepted.

---Containers are emptied and counted daily. The total monetary amount of silver coins and paper currency is deducted from the total number of pennies for the day.

---The totals for all Grades are posted daily to encourage friendly competition.

---Prizes will be given not only for the Grade that has the most money at the end, but in several other categories as well. Prizes include Weepuls for Monday winners, Additional Recess for Tuesday winners, Popsicles for Wednesday winners, Homework Passes for Thursday winners and Ice Cream Sundaes for Friday winners.

If we raise $2800 by Wednesday, Mr. Adams will allow himself to be duct taped to the wall!

If we raise $5,600 by Friday, Mrs. Champagne will dress as Abe Lincoln himself and have a dance session with the grade with the highest total.
