The kids at Hiawatha Elementary School know it makes cents to collect money for cancer.
At the school, the students worked hard during a coin drive over the past month, with the proceeds going to the Heart of the Basin Relay for Life.
The school was split into grade levels, with each one striving to be the best so they could earn a special root beer float party for their grade.
The first graders triumphed by raising more than $400 just among themselves, teacher Melissa Martinez said.
In total, the school raised $1,478 for Relay for Life.
The kids did an absolutely amazing job and Martinez is so proud of them. She is a member of Team Under Construction, the school district team for the relay this year.
So far, Under Construction has $597 donated through it, putting it in second place.
The relay this year will be July 26 and 27. There are 13 teams signed up and they have so far raised $3,844.
Last year, the relay brought in more than $80,000. This year, event chair Jenn Stevenson hopes they hit $82,000.
