Downtown Elementary School PENNYWARS! It’s on!!!

This week, for Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, two schools in the BCSD (Downtown Elementary and my school, Cato Middle School) are doing their annual penny wars to support the N8 Foundation! The wars started on Monday (9/24) and will run through Friday (9/28). The penny wars are all out battles and include themed dress up days and rallies at the end of the week. It is a fun way for kids to get involved and raise money for cancer research. In the past, both schools have raised over $5,000 (each)!!! This year, we would like to give the community an opportunity to participate as well to help them reach and surpass their goals. If you or anyone you know is interested in donating money to go toward the game, please donate HERE. 100% of all money raised will go to the N8 Foundation, of which, 100% goes to research for pediatric cancer. As we say, not a penny wasted!!! 🙂 Also, all donations are tax deductible through the Foundation.

Donations can also be mailed to the Foundation at P.O. Box 6463, Bakersfield, CA 93386.

And game on to everyone who had their students bomb my class with your cash this morning. It’s on!!!

As always, thank you everyone for your continued love and support! Also, shout out to the BCSD as a whole for including the N8 Foundation as one of its trusted beneficiary foundations during its summer teacher training institute.
