Penny War - A Great Success

I know your student will tell you the great news - but just in case they don't, be ready to be blown away.  Elementary students truly were "cheerful givers" and the total was $1,745.00.  Can you believe it?  I have personally never seen so many pennies in one place in my life!!  We are all so excited about giving this money to Our Own Home which is an orphanage in Jinga, Uganda, for orphans living with HIV and AIDS.  What a blessing to be able to do this for them. Thank you for cleaning out your cup holders and every piggy bank in your home. Our 6th grade beat the 5th grade and will each ice cream together very soon.

Friday night is elementary night at the Tattnall verses Westfield BB game.  Sure hope all of you will be in attendance.  We are bringing one item each for a girl and boy ball player tomorrow if possible to present a basket of yummies to them on Friday when they come to our class.  Gum, gatorade, water bottle, or candy would be awesome to bring.  Thanks for helping make this special for our team!

Its great to be a Tattnall Trojan!
