Penny Wars raises over $3400

The 9th through 12th grade students at Kennedy Secondary School competed in their annual Penny Wars last week in an effort to generate dollars for the local Salvation Army.  Together the grade levels raised $3,420.00.  The Senior Class took the honors with over $650 worth of coins donated.

The Penny Wars were sponsored by the High School Student Council.  Kids had the motivation of trying to earn over $1,000 total, in order to be able to observe “teacher battles” in Sumo Suites during the upcoming February Snow Olympics!  Obviously they were very successful.  We are very humbled by the generosity of our students!  All for a GREAT CAUSE.  Picture includes a few High School Student Council Members, with the check for $3,420 for the Salvation Army!

KSS students help Food Shelf

foodshelfThe KSS Student Council held its annual Holiday food drive last week, bringing in donations of food to benefit the local food shelf.

Yesterday the Student Council representatives delivered 550 pounds of food items to the food shelf.

The need is great; food shelf workers indicate that they provide food for 60 or more families every few days.

THANK YOU to our students for helping provide food during the holiday season!
