Change Wars

We declare a CHANGE WAR

Tuesday, September 5 - Friday, September 15.

On Tuesday, September 5th your school in partnership with the North Platte Public Schools Foundation will begin an 8 day long "CHANGE WARS".  The CHANGE WARS will be between grade levels and will run until Friday, September 15th.  Students may bring pennies, silver, even dollars and checks will count towards their total.  (Make checks payable to NPPSDF).  Change will be turned in daily to their classroom teacher.  This 2 week long change wars is the Foundations largest fundraiser leading up to our 8th Annual Bulldog Backyard BBQ tailgate party on September 15 at North Platte High School.

The classroom with the largest amount of change each week will earn a special surprise party.  This is designed to be fun for the students while at the same time collecting for a cause.  The winning school in the district will receive discretionary fund up to $500 for a special project determined by the students.  There will also be weekly drawings as incentives for those students who brought change.  Students turning in change will get a ticket to the September 15th football game to lead the players onto the field!  The overall highest earning classroom in the district will earn free tickets to the Backyard BBQ and lead the charge onto the field.
