Brummitt Elementary School recently held a jar wars fundraiser to raise money for Scholastic's All for Books. Scholastic matches the monetary donations schools generate with a donation of up to one million books to two national non-profit organizations dedicated to helping kids and families in need Kids in Distressed Situation, Inc. and the Kids In Need Foundation.
Students brought in spare change to vote for a staff member to dress up as a mad scientist. The winner was third grade teacher Jane Shuger. Mrs. Sugar invited her students to dress up for the festivities and they paraded through the classrooms encouraging the students to attend that evening’s VIP Night.
