PITTSBURGH - April 10, 2015 - PRLog -- Verona, PA, March 2015 – Imagine Penn Hills School Of Entrepreneurship hosted “Pennies For Patients” an effort to raise money the Lukemia Society.

Part of the mission of the Imagine Penn Hills School Of Entrepreneurship is …not only prepare them academically but develop informed, responsible world citizens… The Pennies For Patients Campaign goes a long way in helping us achieve this part of our mission.


Imagine Penn Hills raised over $1,700 in the Pennies for Patients campaign, which raises money for the Leukemia Society.  About half of that money is in coins!  The school had a goal of $1,000, so we are very excited and proud of the money we were able to raise.   Each student had a box to collect coins that they were able to take home, and each classroom had a box to collect coins and competed with other classrooms within IPH.  The students out performed our and even their expectations.

We also sponsored two events:

The first event was a “Duct Tape Mr. Tracey” day where students paid $1 for a strip of duct tape, and at the event, duct taped the Assistant Principal to the wall.

The second event was a “Pie in Your Face” event where students paid $2 for a pie to toss in the face of a staff member.

(The Imagine Penn Hills Charter School of Entrepreneurship provides a hands-on, engaging program designed to bring entrepreneurial and economic concepts alive for students. The lessons related to the core elementary school curriculum of science, math, social studies, and language arts will incorporate the basic economic and entrepreneurial concepts.)
