Westview Elementary Students raise money


The students of Westview Elementary have been busy, collecting over 155,000 aluminum cans. A local facility will then recycle the cans, and the proceeds will be donated to Riley Hospital for Children. Last year, Westview Elementary donated $3950.80 to Kids Caring and Sharing. Kids Caring and Sharing for Riley Hospital is a fundraising effort that encourages students to give to other children without expecting anything in return. Mrs. Thompson’s 5th grade class won the contest this year by bringing in 18,957 cans; an average of 789.9 cans per student. Their efforts will be rewarded with a pizza party provided by the Westview Elementary P.T.O. Last week a total of 155,078 cans were brought to the school as donations.
