Pennies for patients is a non-profit organization that raises money for children with leukemia. The advocates for this program come to Van Wert each year and provide an informative presentation about leukemia and children. Van Wert Elementary has participated for the last four years. Last year over 1,000.00 was collected by our students. The goal for this year is 1,000.00. The presentation is scheduled for January 27, 2017. Grades 3,4, and 5 will see attend the first program at 8:30 a.m. The second show is at 9:00ish for grades K,1, and 2. Pre-K attendance is optional. I will leave that up to the Pre-K teachers.
