Third Grade Invests in Invest-A-Kid!

Do you like a challenge? Do you like competition? Here’s a way to have fun with both!

Third grade teachers, staff and students are doing their part to support the Parent Teacher Organization’s (PTO’s) Invest-A-Kid Challenge! Third grade classes are going to have a PENNY CHALLENGE, with a twist! All third graders will have a chance to bring in change for their class. Each class will have a jar to represent all the money from that class. The change will be counted up and the jar that has the most money at the end of the month will win a fantastic prize!

Now, here’s the twist! All third graders will have the opportunity to “commandeer” another classes’ jar and trade their money for $5.00. What a great way for IAK funds to grow!!!  Stay posted to see who ends up with the most money at the end of the month and who has gotten the best end of the trading deal!
