Local Students Stall Classes With Thousands of Pennies…To Benefit Charity?
On December 20, 2021, the students in grades 5-8 at Rock L. Butler Middle School participated in an event sponsored by the STING Committee called “Stall Day.”
Stall Day is where students bring in loose change, especially pennies, to give to their teachers to try to” stall” class for as long as possible…in hopes of not having class that day at all. And boy did they ever! Each grade level voted on the charity their donation would go to.
Below you will find the total amount raised and the charity the donation will go to:
- Fifth grade raised $543.04 and will donate to Animal Care Sanctuary.
- Sixth grade raised $529.50 and will donate to Callie Cares.
- Seventh grade raised $603.36 and will split their donation to Wellsboro Food Pantry and the Tioga County Homeless Initiative.
- Eighth grade raised $431.92 and will donate to the Humble Bumble Project.
- Total amount raised was $2107.82
A special thanks goes out to all of the students and their parents for the generous donations. The students went above and beyond and we are so proud of them. We would also like to thank our amazing office staff (Mrs. Hagy, Mrs. Gastrock, Mrs. Weimer and Santa Claus) for rolling ALL of the change. Finally, we would like to thank C & N Bank (Emily Davenport, Lisa Mann, Marley Burrous, Morgan Florio, Paige Weiss and MaryAnn Clark) for the coin wrappers, weighing all of the rolled coins, and giving us a final amount.
