- __Damascus Elementary School Celebrates Grinch-mas During Penny Wars December 7, 2016
As part of their Penny Wars competition, Damascus Elementary School celebrated Grinch-mas on December 1. The students and staff were encouraged to dress up in Grinch clothes or like a Who from the famous Christmas story How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
During each lunch period, the students were able to take a photo with the Grinch Cam. The photos will then be posted on the Damascus Elementary School PIE Facebook page to show how they are growing their hearts together. They are also available for parents to download.
Penny Wars is going on now at Damascus and running until Friday, December 9. Students who bring in pennies each day will receive a small heart that is placed on the Grinch display to help his heart “grow 3 sizes too big.” Throughout the competition, students are also encouraged to key an eye out for a daily “Cindy Lou Who Kindness Challenge” to help her ‘change’ the Grinch.
If they reach their goal of $2,000, the students will receive a visit from the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who and the whole school will get a pajama day. All the money collected from Penny Wars will be used to help families in need in the community.
