Classroom Change Wars!

Conant Elementary students raise money for new playground equipment through "classroom change wars".  First grader Alex Swiatkowski shares, "Mrs. Benitez's class won and chose to dye Mr. Russo's hair green and white because he is NOT a Michigan State fan.  The best part of Change Wars was the strategy to sabotage!  When we collect dollar bills and pennies that helps our class and all other coins subtract from the amount in other classrooms.  Mr. Russo's hair looks funny, the eyebrows are awesome!" Conant raised $4,217.31 - way to go Cubs!
