Change War!


1, 2, 3, 4… Goldsmith Library declares a CHANGE WAR!

Goldsmith Elementary Library is hosting a Change War from Monday March 7th through Friday March 11th to benefit the Scholastic All for Books program. The All for Books program has three great benefits – the money donated goes to buy books for our school, the money spent earns us Scholastic Dollars to in turn buy more books, and lastly, for every dollar donated, Scholastic will give a matching donation to a literacy program for at-risk kids. Your spare change will help our school and other schools as well!

Here’s how the Change War will work:

  • Students will bring in change each day to their homeroom teacher.
  • Each classroom will have two containers – UK/UL, and will vote for their favorite team by placing their change in the proper container.
  • If UK fans bring in more coins, Dr. Renner and Mr. Hill will wear UK colors, and if UL fans bring in more coins, Mr. Gade and Mr. Maier will wear UL colors on Tuesday March 15th.
  • Along with supporting your team, your loose change will help us purchase books for classroom libraries. This will help to get more kids reading, and it will give them NEW books to read!
  • The class that has the most money will get a popcorn and movie party.
  • If we reach our goal of $500, the entire school will get to dress in UL and UK gear on Tuesday March 15th, just in time for March Madness!

Monday – bring in pennies

Tuesday – bring in nickels

Wednesday – bring in dimes

Thursday – bring in quarters

Friday – anything goes!


So, get cleaning out those change purses, pockets, junk drawers, and couch cushions! You’ll be feeling groovy knowing you’ve helped put books in our library and into the hands of needy kids.
