This year marks the 50th year that Lawrence School library has held its Cranberry Counting Contest!
There is a jar of cranberries in the library and students are encouraged to estimate how many cranberries they think are in the jar. The contest ends on Friday, November 16. Prizes will be awarded on the Monday before Thanksgiving to the participants who come closest to the actual number without going over it.
