The Mesabi East Elementary School has been busy the last couple of weeks. The week prior to Thanksgiving the staff and students chose to do a Penny War as a fundraiser to help support a family that had a house fire. The Penny War went for a week and when it was done the total raised for this family was $2,379.24 as well as a $200.00 cash donation. I am beaming with "Giant" pride of our staff, students, parents, and community for their contributions. The family was presented the donation this week and was incredibly grateful for the generous donation. Thank you to everyone for their generosity and care.
The Penny War was one of many events taking place at the school. Additionally, the Scholastic Book Fair took place on November 24th and 25th, the Elementary K-6 Mitten Run, and the 5th Grade Readers Theater were also on November 25th.
