Give From The Heart


Give From the Heart Week


This February we will be having a “Give From the Heart Money Challenge.” The money collected will go to the Gibson family, of rural Clinton, who lost their home and all belongings to a house fire. The Gibson children attend school at Chokio-Alberta. Some of our students might know them from extra curricular activities; the boys are on the MAHACA wrestling team and have played on Little League Teams. We would like to raise money to help them get back on their feet.


Our Give From the Heart Challenge will take place next week, February 12-16. Each day we will collect a different coin for positive point values. Students can put their coins in their class jar, located in the office.

Monday: Penny

Tuesday: Nickel


Thursday: Quarter

Friday: Couch Day-All coins accepted, check the sofa!

*On Friday, we will have a PJ Day and also have “I Love to Read” activities


To spice things up, we will be adding negative point value coins. Students can bring in other day’s coins which will subtract points if they put it in another class’ jar. For example: if a fourth grader brings 2 nickels on Monday and places it in the fifth grade jar, the fifth grade class will be down 10 points. If you bring a dollar to place in a jar, that will subtract 100 points from that class.


In the end, the winning class with the highest points will receive a special treat.


Thank you
