Sevastopol Elementary students honor veterans

The Sevastopol elementary school's program "Community of Caring" benefited local veterans during the school year's first quarter. Through the program, each grade level is responsible for a different section of the community to support. In the first quarter of the year, students in the elementary grades participated in a Penny War to raise funds for the local VFW post 3088. During a penny war, different homerooms compete by bringing in pennies for positive points and silver coins to count against opposing homerooms' scores. In the school, two teams worked on getting points and taking points away from the other team to create a little friendly competition. After the competition was over and all of the coins were counted, the school raised $1111.11 for the post. The amount of money raised was intentional to recognize Veterans day on 11/11. Students from Sevastopol elementary presented Bill Graf, a quartermaster for the VFW post 3088, a check for the money raised. The funds raised from their collected coins will go towards projects that support local veterans suffering from the effects of war, like PTSD.
