MCMS has raised money for the Humane Society. Everyone in MCMS had the chance to donate money, and many participated. We had the idea to have teachers bring in their pet’s picture. We placed these pictures on jars, and set them out in the lunch room making voting available to all. MCMS students and staff donated by placing money in teacher’s pet jars. This fundraiser took place the week of February 9th- 13th. We were able to raise $234.10 from the help of student and staff at MCMS. There are many purposes for us participating in this activity. One reason for participating is to be able to learn and apply financial literacy skills. While learning, our hopes were to raise money for our local animal shelter. We collected all the money from each jar and the winning teachers’ pet jar goes to, Mrs. Suzie Rickard and her pets, her pets Frankie, Cash, Molly, and Charlie.
