  • Countdown to Cambodia Coin Drive

The explanation for the coin drive could have been a bit confusing on Friday. Please put money inside the grades you want to lose. The grade with the highest value will lose the coin drive, and with the least will win. We will be counting the value of the coins/bills. All donations will go to the school building in Pursat province of Cambodia.

As of 4:30 pm of Monday, the losing Grade was Grade 8, and the winning Grade was Grade 7! C’mon Grade 8! (Ms. Urquhart)
