Coins For Classes

Posted: Updated:

Powers Lake is in the mist of the oil boom, and the elementary school is dealing with a rapid increase in student enrollment.

It has grown from about 30 children to more than a 100. Even though the school bond was approved, it is still short on money to build a larger school. So, students are taking matters into their own hands.

"Third-grade kids take turns each morning collecting change. They come in with coffee cans full with money, and we spend recess counting it," says Sue Gunderson, the Powers Lake principle.

In the past week, students have raised almost $1,400.
