Each year, the school has a coin collection where the students are able to donate loose change or any amount they want to the Veteran’s Home in Hollidaysburg.

This year volunteers collected about $646.60 from the whole junior school. All grade levels participated in the collection. This year, ninth grade won with a collection of $346.46 and celebrated with ice cream, eighth grade came in second with a collection of $163. 87 and seventh came in third with a collection of $136. 27.

“I donated three quarters,” ninth grade student Reece McManamy said.

The students donated their money during their lunch period. Some students donate a significant amount and some donated a low amount.

“Yes, Mr. Shultz told us that ninth graders have never won. So I was definitely surprised,” Mcmanamy said.

Shultz was one of the teachers who helped out with the collection. 

“Yes, I do typically take part in fundraisers,” ninth grade student Reece McManamy said.

On Friday, Dec. 8, the school gave each ninth grader a ticket for them to hand in at lunch for each ninth grade student to get a free ice cream treat. The Veteran’s home residents are getting presents with the money for the each person in the home.
