Students from Melanie Bailey’s kindergarten class at East Elementary enjoyed ice cream sandwiches on Wednesday afternoon. That was their reward for being the top classroom in the Pennies for Paws promotion that was designed to help raise money for the new animal shelter at the Corinne T. Smith Animal Center. Pictured left to right are Payton Williams, Matthew Bundick, Drew Hagler, Cooper Swanzy and Adrianna Ibarra. The other top classrooms were Mrs. Nicholas’ class at Woodland Heights Elementary, Mrs. Griffin’s class at Coggin Elementary, Mrs. Allen’s class at Northwest Elementary and Mrs. Moore’s class at Brownwood Intermediate.
