The Coin Has Been Found!
At 12:20 pm Thursday, March 17, 2005 the coin was found by Ms. Kozoriz in a locker on the 2nd floor in the southwest corner of the building. Congratulations to the Science Team! (Kozoriz, Ottenbright and Wiste) The coin was an Israeli half-sheckel. The hunt lasted 3 days, 23 hours and 50 minutes. Over $100 was raised for young Leah's communication device. We had over 100 participants this year! Thanks to everyone who played we hope you had a great time!
Some interesting anecdotes from this year's coin hunt:
- Mrs. Armstrong actually opened the locker 41 minutes earlier, but she had used "techniques not available to students."
- Mr. Ottenbright, who spent every spare period looking for the coin, was heard to ask: "Are the periods getting shorter?"
- Just before the clues were released on π Day, Mr. Beaumont was heard to say: "I'll have this solved in 30 minutes."
- Mrs. Zaporzan and Mrs. Silva were found hunting through the ledges of the memorial alcove "looking for the coin!"
