Monday begins St. Jude Week at Jefferson.  We will have a fun dressing different each day and supporting children at St. Jude.  Bring your change and let’s see who will win the Coin War!  Will it be the boy or the girls? 

Monday is Patriot Penny Day; wear patriot gear and bring your pennies.

Tuesday is Knucklehead Nickel Day; wear crazy hair and/or hats; bring your nickels.

Wednesday is Touchdown Ten Cent Day; wear your favorite team shirt or colors and bring in your dimes.

Thursday is Quirky Quarter Day: come mismatched, backwards clothes and bring in your quarters.

Friday is Look Alike Buck Day: wear a matching outfit with a friend; bring your dollars.


Bring what you can.  Every little bit helps!
