The Zionsville Community High School Student Council set a goal to raise $5,000 for Pennies for Patients this year, and fourth period classes collected spare change during a two-week period. The class that collected the most money won a pizza party, and students also sponsored a “Parents’ Night Out” babysitting service, hosted a ping-pong tournament, conducted an NCAA pool and did a “Clean Out Your Console” on parents’ cars.

The Student Council exceeded their goal, with $5,714 raised at press time. The money benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Last year, ZCHS raised more money than any other high school in Indiana. Students are hoping for the same recognition this year.
