It’s time for HSA’s Coin War! (previously known as the Penny Challenge)
We are doing it a little differently this year. Instead of counting the coins, each homeroom is competing to see which class bucket is the heaviest. Sounds easy, right? Put as many coins (pennies & silver) as you can in your class bucket. The heaviest bucket after 3 days will win!
Here’s the TWIST:
Students from opposing classrooms will be attacking your class by dropping dollar bills or checks into your bucket, lowering your total bucket weight. For each dollar (either bill or check) ½ ounce will be deducted from your class’s total bucket weight. For example – if a bucket is attacked with $10.00, that bucket will decrease by 5 ounces.
The top three classes win a popcorn party and bragging rights!!
The Fine Print:
- Please make checks out to H.S.A. The checks will deduct ½ ounce per dollar from the bucket’s total weight – the same as bills.
- Classroom teachers will hold their class buckets outside their rooms so opposing students can attack. K-1 buckets will be outside of the Media Center.
- The buckets will be weighed every day and the leaders announced each afternoon.
- Students will have 5 MINUTES to attack other classrooms each morning. Challenge time is from 7:55-8:00 AM. No attacks will be made after the tardy bell.
