Every year, Student Council sponsors a life-changing fundraiser: Cereal Wars. Many students depend on school for breakfast, so what happens during summer vacation? Not many people know that one in six children in Michigan struggles with hunger; some may even be your close friends. It was brought to Student Council’s attention that we need to support our classmates. As a result, a few years ago, our Student Council decided to found the Cereal Wars.

Each WIN class was given the challenge of collecting the most cereal boxes. Then, each class was tallied by how many servings were in each box. Student Council kept a chart of all of the servings per class to determine which class collected the most.

So far, Ms. Koperski’s class is in the lead with about 1,600 servings. In second is Mr. Lantzy’s class with about 689 servings. Third place is Mrs. Stahr with 643 servings. The effort of these three classes is outstanding, and they have done a lot to contribute. If every class was this involved, we could help so many people!

James Waldy and Evan Tasdemir, in Mrs. Stahr’s WIN class, emphasized the need for this drive. James stated, “I think this drive is important because we can help kids who don’t have breakfast feel safer. I donate because I know people who go hungry, and I want to help them.” Evan says, “Everyone deserves the right to not be hungry. My family participates in a lot of drives and fundraisers. I think it’s important to help kids in need.” Mrs. Stahr’s class seems really involved in this cause. How does she inspire her students? Both James and Evan commented,” She reminds us that we can help so many people. That gives us the drive to help as many people as we can.” That should be the mindset of all students. When you have the chance to help someone in need, be sure to jump on the opportunity.
