The McDonough Elementary Student Council hosted their annual Mr. D Change Drive Challenge and they collected $1,000! The top earning classes won a mustang cookie decorating contest and the second place winners won a dance party with Mr. D (aka, Principal DiBenedetto). Did we mention that, since the students blew through their goal of collecting 50 lbs of coins, Mr. D had to dress up as a rodeo clown for the dance party? Great job, Mustangs, and thanks to Mr. D for being a good sport.
As part of a unit on kindness, 4th grade is collecting unopened bags and cans of dog & cat food for the Manchester Animal Shelter. We will be collecting items between February 13th - 17th!
