Imagine being in Kindergarten and your class could win a cotton candy party...Where do I sign up? That was only part of the motivation the students at Yankeetown Elementary school in Newburgh had to bring in coins for GRANTED.

Mr. Principal is Going Over the Edge

The students had a much bigger goal - Raise enough money to send their Principal Over the Edge. Yes, they met and exceeded their goal, bringing in $2,204.35! So, that means that their Principal Mr. McConnell OVER THE EDGE for GRANTED Wish children on April 30th!
