Casper Classical Academy’s NJHS Donates to Humane Society

Casper Classical Academy’s National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) held their annual Penny Wars from March 6-17.  There were four teams competing to see who could achieve the highest total within their jugs: 6th graders, 7th graders, 8th/9th graders, and staff. Any contributions of pennies to the jugs counted as a positive, while any other contributed coins counted against the total. Sabotage (i.e. donating “other” coins to competitors jugs) was strongly encouraged! 

At the conclusion of the Penny Wars the 8th/9th grade group had the highest total, winning a free PE day of their choosing.  The total funds raised allowed for a donation of $600 to the Casper Humane Society, the charitable organization chosen by CCA’s NJHS. The donation will help the Humane Society with medical expenses, food, and any other needs. CCA’s NJHS believes this is the highest amount raised by a Penny Wars competition. At their meeting on April 12, CCA’s NJHS presented the money to the Casper Humane Society.

Congratulations to the Casper Classical Academy student body, and the CCA NJHS for giving back to our community!
