The students and staff of Teach Elementary School recently raised funds and collected items to support two local charities.

During the Penny Wars event each class contributed cash to collection jars specified for each class. While pennies counted as positive cash flow, everything else counted as negative, inspiring students to drop pennies in their own class jar and contributing silver or paper money in other class jars.

This year the students chose the Women’s Shelter Program, raising $800 for the organization.

Fourth-graders in Shawna Robson’s class made 24 Inspiration Bags for the homeless that contained hand sanitizer, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, Q-Tips, tissues, bottled water and first aid kits.

At a recent assembly, the donation was presented to the Women’s Shelter Program and the Inspiration Bags were presented to Community Action Partnership of SLO County to be distributed to the homeless.
