MARCO’S PIZZA NIGHT RESULTS

The winner of the Marco’s Pizza Night was………. 6th grade!  Last year, the 4th grade classes won all year.  They are now 5th graders and lost to 6th grade by only $24.00.  This year’s 4th grade classes were only $6.00 behind the 5th graders.  Sounds like a close competition. Now we weren’t given any information regarding 7th grade, so be sure you try harder to participate next time!

Total pizza sales equaled $872.00 and the middle school earned a percentage of those sales which totaled $130.00!  Congratulations!
