MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!


Inspired by Helen Nolan's book, How Much, How Far, How Heavy, How Long, How Tall is 10,000?, Mrs. Wippel's fourth grade class has collected over 10,000 pennies.  The class has been doing a variety of math activities that encompass the use of collected pennies.  Pennies are typically thought as "small change" but these pennies have immense value, as the class will be donating them to Got Your Back Network; an organization that helps give comfort to military families that have lost a loved one.  A solider has been invited to Otisville to accept the $100 donation on behalf of Got Your Back Network.  Congratulations, Mrs. Wippel's class!
