Mari-Linn penny drive results

Every year, the Mari-Linn PTA challenges each class to compete against each other to raise money for the PTA fund. 

After many successful piggy bank raids and even more requests made to family and friends, the total raised this year was $1,545.65. This year’s top collectors were:

1st place: 5th Grade with 17,467 points (Mrs. Martin)
2nd place: Kindergarten with 15,055 points (Ms. Rogers)
3rd place: 1st grade with 11,205 points (Mrs. Coblentz)

The classes got to choose from rewards such as a field trip, art in the classroom, and a movie day.
