March 21, 2019 Day 4

Don’t forget that today and tomorrow are the last two days of the KMS Penny War. Get your pennies in the jug for YOUR grade and sabotage the OTHER grades with your nickels, dimes and quarters!!

Remember today and Friday are half days with conferences. Students, make arrangements to come to the conference with your family. We love celebrating you!

Today is March 21, or 3-21, is a symbolic date to celebrate people with Down syndrome and those who live and work with them throughout the world. The date, 3-21 represents Trisomy 21, the medical term for Down syndrome, which is the third replication of the 21st chromosome.

As part of the celebration around the world, people are encouraged to wear crazy socks. The idea is to wear brightly colored, mismatched, long, printed socks — or even layer three socks, one for each chromosome to show support for kids with Down Syndrome.

We hope your rocking your socks and joining us as we tell the story to accept, respect and include those with Down syndrome in our communities.

Have a great day KMS.

Just a reminder that the KMS Penny War will be running until the end of this week, so you have time to add your change to the jugs located outside the cafeteria during lunch, or in the office at other times of the day. • Remember, pennies and paper money count as positive points for YOUR grade. • Silver coins count as negative points for OTHER grades. So, make sure you only put dimes, nickels and quarters in the jugs of other grades! • At the end of next week, all change will be tallied and the grade with the most points will win a night with NO HOMEWORK!

Friday, March 15, 2019 Day 6

Don’t forget to bring in your spare change on Monday for the KMS Penny War! Here’s how it works: • Containers will be located outside the cafeteria • Pennies and paper money count as positive points for YOUR grade. • Silver coins count as negative points for OTHER grades. In other words, dropping a quarter in another grade’s container takes 25 points from their total! • At the end of next week, all change will be tallied and the grade with the most points will win a night with no homework! The teachers for that grade will pick the day. Start saving your change—it can make a big difference!

Thursday, March 14, 2019 Day 5

Join the KMS Penny War! Starting next week on Monday, each grade will compete to see who can fill their jug with the most pennies. The team with the most pennies wins! HOWEVER…… To make things a bit more fun, the you can sabotage the jars of the other grades! This is done by adding coins other than pennies into the jars which will score negatively. For example, 10 pennies in one team’s jar can be wiped out by the addition of a dime by another team. At the end of the week, all change/points will be tallied and the grade with the most points will win a night with NO HOMEWORK!
