Attention 6th, 7th, and 8th Graders: Penny Wars starts tomorrow and runs through Wednesday March 20. Each grade has a bottle that they may drop their donations into. Pennies will add to the total, while silver like nickels, dimes, quarters and one dollar coins or bills will subtract from the total. Edison Middle School Student Council representatives will be in the gym every morning to assist you. The grade that collects the most amount of money will be rewarded to a make you own sundae event. If you have any questions, talk to your representatives.
