Normal Park Coin Banks

Today we have some exciting news! Each of you will be taking home a brand new Normal Park coin bank. Reportedly there are 10 billion dollars in coins in the United States that aren't being used. They might be in an old piggy bank, or the junk drawer in the kitchen at home or between the sofa cushion, but they aren't being used. Our challenge is to find some of those coins and use them to "Change our School". We could turn those unused coins into pencils and crayons and paper and glue sticks and material for our exhibits - all those things that make learning at Normal Park fun and unique. So let's get out there and look under the sofa cushions, check the sidewalks, look in the floor of Mom's car, and that drawer in our room where we put everything and find those dusty old coins and use them to Change our School!
