Stewards of Change - House Penny Drive 2017
Stewardship | House pride | Friendly Competition
Over the years the Barat Academy community has done a great job of fostering stewardship towards Barat Academy. This year we are rolling out a new and fun way to continue this stewardship and at the same time create a friendly competition among the houses.
How does our Stewards of Change House Penny drive work?
Every day from Tuesday April 25th until May 17 at 8am, the four house jars will be available to accept change. At Morning Prayer, during lunch and all day in the Student Office. Students, faculty, alumni and friends of Barat can all contribute to the house jars. Online donations will be represented in our "Virtual House Jars".
Pennies are positive points. Adding a penny to your House jar is equal to one point.
The strategy throughout this competition comes with the contribution of silver and paper money.
Silver coins such as nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, silver dollars and paper bills are negative points. If you add one of these to another House jar, it subtracts penny points in the denomination amount.
After 8am on May 17th the points for each jar will be counted for the final time. All positive points will be added to each overall house totals. If all houses are in the negative for points, the house with the lowest negative point total wins and that point total will be added to their overall house totals for the 2017-2018 school year.
All proceeds from this competition will benefit the Barat Academy Annual Appeal.
