Colby, Kan.– Sacred Heart Catholic School, Colby Grade School, and Heartland Christian School recently competed in Western State Bank’s “Bring in the Dough Coin Challenge.” The challenge served as a fundraiser for the schools while helping bring more coins back into circulation.
Colby Grade School won first place with a total of $1,699.42 in coins.
Each school will receive a check for the total amount raised, and Colby Grade School will also receive a donation from Western State Bank. The winning grade level in each school will receive a donut party, with donuts delivered by bank employees. Colby Grade School's grade level winner was Kindergarten, with Mrs. Saddler's class earning the extra incentive of a pizza party with Mrs. Stapp, Colby PreK-8 Assistant Principal.
In all, the fundraiser brought $3,182.17 worth of coins back into local circulation, and, with the bank’s donation and cash donations, $3,511.17 went back to local schools.
