...The Extraodinary Penny Harvest!!!
Students from 44 Colorado schools are gearing up for this year's program by hosting "Kick-Off Ceremonies," making presentations in classrooms, reaching out to their neighbors and identifying important community issues.
Here are some awesome ways are students are preparing for the Harvest:
Lowry Elementary Student Leaders present the Penny Harvest program to their peers.
Kickoff Ceremony at Lowry Elementary with special guest Denver Councilman Linkhart. The students used a video, student presentations, the Wheel of Caring, a slide show, and many other great tools to get their peers excited.
McKinley-Thatcher Elementary Students gather the student body to help identify key issue areas and organizations to add to the Wheel of Caring:
McKinley-Thatcher All-Star Leaders perform their school cheer to get their peers motivated!
Graland Country Day School Leaders create a nice loud PENNY--HARVEST Chant...
Teller Elementary Student Leaders sing a Penny Harvest Song they wrote, while displaying the Piggy Bank that will collect all of the "lucky pennies."
Great job student leaders!! Keep up the fantastic work. For more information on our participating schools, visit our website: http://www.ypfoundation.org/
