"That's a big check!" one student exclaimed.
"Sure is," another replied. "Is that even REAL?"
The answer is "no" and "yes." The check isn't actually real. What would the bank do with such a big one? The money that it is giving to the Michael J. Perkins School is quite real.
Why are we getting FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS? Take a look at last month's post that explains how the kids won it for their physical fitness.
Now all we have to do is wait for spring--or, at least the worse of the winter weather to pass--so the kids can use some of the new sports equipment it bought. What will they be playing with? A wealth of games and physical fitness:
*A new badmitton set
*New tennis rackets
*12 potato sacks
Hurry up, springtime!
