Students, McKenna Patterson, Justan Olsen and Mason Larsen add pennies to their bottle during the "Penny Wars" at Cherry Creek. The war ended on Friday and the battle won as the students helped raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The students were able to bring change from home, contributing pennies to their own grade level and "sabatoging" the other grade levels by putting silver or paper money in their jars. The students raised over $200! Thanks for all your help and support!

However, in the end, students did say meeting the snake was one of their favorites.
