THAT'S A LOT OF PENNIES


Students in Mrs. Paula Youngberg's class collected the most pennies ($1,500 worth) among the kindergarten classes at Collins Elementary during a recent penny drive to assist the Darlene Lubaski family, who lost their home to a fire in February. The class from each grade that collected the most earned an ice cream party: Mary Fullmer's first graders, 14,800 pennies; Michelle Averill's second graders, 17,000 pennies; and Ann Shavalia's third graders, 10,375 pennies. Also earning parties were classes of Julie Krause and Diane Rustad, in appreciation for counting and wrapping all the pennies. Pictured with the class are (back row): Mrs. Youngberg, Principal Pam Akin, Darlene Lubaski and two of her sons, Grant and Garrett Lubaski.
