The students at St. Agnes School wanted to do something for the Little Sisters and the Elderly Poor for the season of Lent 2016. So, they set to having a competition among the grades.
The 3rd grades were to bring in pennies and try to build up the number received to help meet the amount of money to be donated. However, the 5th and 6th grades could lower the penny amount (this would be a penalty) by adding their silver (nickels, dimes and quarters) which would make the 3rd graders work ever so much harder to build up their portion of the donation.
The 10th and 11th grades had a “free will choice” (and this was optional) to bring in money (paper money). Their goal was to raise $1,000 without competition. Now that you are completely confused, we want you to know that the students (every class) surpassed the goals set for themselves. Everyone worked together for the good of the event and delivered a total of $3,604.91 to the Little Sisters on Monday, April 18. Everyone was excited about the money given the Little Sisters which will certainly help in their Mission of caring for the Elderly Poor.
Thank you St. Agnes
