The Great Penny Wars

Monday, February 26, 2018
Courtesy photo The end of Cloverdale Middle School’s annual “penny wars” saw Principal Dawn Tucker (above) and Administrative Assistant Christian Frye (below) duct-taped to the wall. The wars are run by the Student Council and are part of the “Pennies for Patients” fundraiser benefiting Riley Hospital. Each classroom is equipped with a penny box, and students vote by adding contributions to a staff member’s bucket during lunches. This year, more than $1,000 in pennies created a tie.
