Our 2nd Annual Perry Helping Perry Coin Drive yielded fantastic results. This year’s goal was $1,200.00 (which would have exceeded our last year total just slightly). Over the two week period we collected change, our students (and their families) donated a total of $1,515.49. The entire amount will be donated to Perry Helping Perry, our community organization run by Perry’s own Mrs. Patty Knotts. This money will be used to support programs like the Sack Snack program, which close to 60 of our own families benefit from weekly. Congratulations to 1st Grade students who won the “special treat.” Below is a breakdown of the grade level totals.
Kindergarten – $315.25 | 1st Grade – $357.42 | 2nd Grade – $311.23 | 3rd Grade – $182.98 | 4th Grade – $348.61
