Sterling Elementary decorates mailbox for My School’s Cool program


STERLING — Students at Sterling Elementary School recently decorated a mailbox that will be auctioned off at the Bay City Mall as part of the My School’s Cool program, which will award $5,000 to the school with the most points at the end of the semester.

Sterling Elementary is one of 10 schools in the Bay area that was chosen to participate in the second semester of the MSC program. Schools earn points by participating in events put on through the mall and by turning in receipts from shopping at the mall.

Painting and decorating mailboxes is just one of many events sponsored through the mall, and this particular event also includes schools outside of the MSC program.

Mailboxes are currently on display at the Bay City Mall, and they will be put up for bid from March 27 to April 5.

“The school with the highest bid gets $500,” said Rachel Bartlett, the MSC school coordinator for Sterling Elementary.

Sterling Elementary also raised $386 as part of a penny drive for Bay County Habitat for Humanity, which gave the school a point for each dollar. The school is currently in second place with 630.12 points, and the semester ends May 21.

Bids for the mailboxes can be placed at All proceeds will go to Bay County Habitat for Humanity.
