'Penny Wars' Raises $2,814
"I wanted to take a moment to send out a quick and HUGE THANK YOU to each and every person who made the Penny Wars Fundraiser a success! Without the help from the CPS staff, principals, students, parents, and community members, we NEVER would have raised $2814 for the Kubo family. I know without a doubt that the money you all raised has not only lifted a piece of the financial burden that they are feeling, but it has raised their spirits knowing that they have a community that is backing them in the battle the family is currently going through. Your efforts are appreciated more than you will ever know! Thank you!"

Chadron Public School students at all four buildings are challenged to raise money to offset costs to the Steve Kubo family who are coping with medical treatments and expenses for a member of their family. Steve Kubo is a long time employee of Chadron Public Schools and works in all four buildings as well as drives bus for many of our student activities and field trips.
District students will start today with a fundraiser called Penny Wars. This will be a competition between the High School, Middle School, Intermediate School, and the Maintenance Crew. The Primary Building will be doing a Penny War between each of their classrooms.
For those of you whom have never heard of a Penny War, here are the rules. Each building or classroom will have a container for themselves as well as a container labeled for each of the other schools. The goal is to deposit as many pennies as they can in the next two weeks into their container. with each penny counting as 1 pt. towards their total. At the same time they can deposit any silver colored coins into the other containers of the other teams or classrooms. This will be a negative point value for whomever’s container they put it in. For example, if a high school student puts a quarter in the middle school bucket, that would be -25 pts. toward the middle school’s overall point value.
This competition will run for the next two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, the goal is to have more points than any other building or classroom. We would love to get parents and community involved in this great fundraiser. Hopefully you will see containers during Parent Teacher Conferences, feel free to stop in at any building to help contribute, and/or help your kiddo bring pennies or silver coins to their buildings!!
ALL proceeds will be given to the Kubo’s to use however they need to as they go through this difficult situation.
