Gananda Dollars for Scholars will be running their annual Jar Wars competition throughout the week too! Here's how it works:
 
Richard Mann Elementary - Pennies (only) are collected in jars in front of the cafeteria during lunch breaks. The grade level that raises the most money over the week wins an ice cream prize.
 
Gananda Middle School - All forms of currency are collected in jars in front of the cafeteria during lunch breaks. Pennies are positive points and everything else is counted as negative points. The grade level that raises the most money (often the lowest negative value) over the week wins.
 
Ruben A. Cirillo High School - All forms of currency are collected in jars in front of the cafeteria during lunch breaks. Pennies are positive points and everything else is counted as negative points. The grade level that raises the most money (often the lowest negative value) over the week wins. The class that wins will earn points for Homecoming week.

The money collected during Jar Wars helps support the Gananda Dollars for Scholars Susan Alexander Scholarship fund.
