The upcoming U of M vs State game has brought out some very strong opinions from students, parents and staff at Long. While the fifth grade penny wars is always a fun and profitable event, this year has been exceptional. Various flags and mascots ‘mysteriously’ appeared in several classrooms today. Students were furiously writing their opinions and voting for their choice. Parents, students and staff all contributed generously to the penny wars jars in support of their team. Along with our first Popcorn Friday, it was a great way to end the week and as one fifth grader was heard to say, “either way, we win”.
