SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – The end of the school year is always a fun time for students and staff; with field days, final projects, and other fun outdoor activities. This year Union Street School students participated in the third annual field day and penny war. The penny war is a weeklong fundraising event that takes place the week of field day. The goal of the penny war is simple – to have the most amount of positive points as possible at the end of the week. Every penny is one positive point for your team. Any silver coins are negative points based off the value of the coin. The grade that has the most points at the end of the week wins!
Each year the proceeds of the penny war are donated to an organization. This year, we gave our proceeds of $994 to the Springfield Humane Society. Thank you to all of the Union Street Students for your fundraising efforts as well as Mascoma Savings Bank for all of your support.
