Penny Wars Fundraiser

Lanesboro Schools Penny Wars


Burros are: understanding, respectful, responsible, optimistic students.

As such we would like to take the opportunity to raise money for the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to the relief networks on the ground providing refugees with much-needed food, clothing, and other necessities.

Beginning on Monday, April 4th students will participate in penny wars, a friendly fundraising competition where each grade K-12 will contribute money (change and/or dollar bills) daily into their grade level bucket. The amounts for each class will be tabulated and the class that raises the most money at the end of 10 days wins the Penny war. The winning grade level will be awarded an ice cream party.

Our school goal is to raise $1200 toward the relief effort. Our community though small is mighty. We can make a difference. Thank you for helping your child to participate.
