Homestead 5th Grade Students' Project Supports Smile Train

Four 5th Grade Homestead students, Omjas Tripath, Gio Battistoni, Sofia Neeley and Sarah Benoit completed a special project last week at Homestead raising $1547.24 for the organization, Smile Train.  Smile Train is a non-profit organization that funds surgeries for kids with cleft lip.  The four students researched the organization, developed a presentation for students at Homestead and put on a Coin War from Monday, November 12 through Friday, November 16.  Coins were collected daily by the students, and with the money collected and donated, six surgeries for kids can be completed through the Smile Train organization.  We are so proud of Omjas, Gio, Sofia and Sarah for doing their part in changing the world!
