Tarpey Elementary raised $1,896.05 in a penny drive for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.  Grade levels competed for most money collected for the charity, earning extra recess time and a “Party in a Box.”  Tarpey Student Council organizes the penny drive annually to support this important charity.  Mrs. Dora Briseno’s third grade class and Mr. Chris Hart’s fifth grade class were the school’s money collection leaders.  Grace Cha was the champion of the drive, bringing in $100.00 of her own money.
