100th Day of School
Pennies for Patients
During the month of February, The Waverly High School National Honor Society worked with Waverly Primary to conduct the Pennies for Patients coin drive. Students in kindergarten through 2nd grade donated coins which were counted and then added to online donations. Over $1400 was collected and donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This money will go for research for childhood cancers.
The NHS hosts a pizza party for the classroom in each grade that raised the most amount of money. The kindergarten winner was Mrs. Pollard's class, first grade winner was Mrs. McAllister's class, and second grade winner was Mrs. Young's classroom. Additionally, Mrs. McAllister's class will received a Gold Pennant, Silver Pennants will be awarded to Mrs. Young's and Mrs. Pollard's classes, and Mrs. Spriggs' class will receive a Bronze Pennant. Anna Williams was the student who raised the most donations during the coin drive.
This is the third year of the Pennies for Patients collaboration between the NHS and Waverly Primary.
