CENTERBURG — The Cashinator money machine came to Centerburg Elementary School on Thursday, and several students had the opportunity to try their luck at grabbing flying bills for a certain period of time.
The Centerburg PTO brought in the phone-boothsized device as a reward for student effort in the recent fundraising campaign. Individuals who raised the most money were given a stunt in the Cashinator and got to keep as much cash as they could catch in 30 seconds.
Third-grader Brody Gaston snagged $15 during his tour in the Cashinator. Other pupils earning a chance in the money machine were: Colton Petry, grade two; MaKenna Heskett, kindergarten; Ethen Kent, grade three; Evan Tudor, kindergarten; Aidan Dunlap, grade one; Matthew Nichols, grade two; Luke Grandstaff, grade four; and Kaina Newman, grade five.
PTO funds are used to support various programs and to purchases needed classroom supplies and materials.
