I remember the first yr my children attended school there I thought I'm from Farm Country in Ohio. We never had anything like this ........
Here is what they do they have squares no certain amount. They sell squares for $ 5 dollars a piece. They have a wk to sell squares. Then on Friday they bring 2 cows to the school. They wait for the cow to plop in a square. Sometimes it takes a while. They usually raise over $ 1500 dollars so usually 1st place is around $ 500 dollars and second is $ 300 dollars. The rest of the money goes to the school for fieldtrips , any school supplies that they need to operate. It really is great because a lot of people donate a set amount every yr. The kids really enjoy that. The whole week they have a theme ....... on Farming ..... on Friday everyone is supposed to dress up like a Farmer of course.
Also they have a Mooing Contest ..... which they have students that want try to be the best. They give away 1st 2nd 3rd places , which are 2 movie tickets for each place. Also for just trying they give out a Milky Way candy bar. It's so cute !!! The kids have a blast.
Also on Friday they let the kids go out and pet the cow while there. This yr they had the cow over by the kindergarten recess area. So I took a few pics on my camera phone , when I dropped Jennifer off at noon.
