Belton school finances Honor Flight
The Student Council at Scott Elementary School recently sponsored a penny drive, raising $650 for the Honor Flight Network of Kansas City. That will be enough for the Belton school to send one veteran to Washington D.C. to for a monument tour with other veterans.
The Honor Flight Network is working to find a veteran in the Belton community to represent their donation, and that person will be invited to the school after the trip to tell students about going to the nation’s capital.
Students honored at Ray-Pec High
Two local civic organizations have recognized Students of the Month for February at Raymore-Peculiar High School.
Cameron Gillespie and Makenzie Stucker are being honored by the Raymore-Peculiar Sunrise Optimist Club, while Skyler Roberson and Tayler Bates were chosen by the Belton-Raymore Rotary Club.
Science Olympiad achievers
Harrisonville Middle School students Dayton Hoffman and Danika Knight earned medals with a second-place finish earlier this month in the Write It, Do It event at the Warrensburg Science Olympiad Invitational.
More than 40 teams from Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Iowa competed. Other Harrisonville students finishing in the top 10 in one or more events were Charlie Sturgeon, Max Werner, Cort DeVenney, McKinzie Parks, Libbie Lundeen, Kayla Mason and Chloe Jackson.
The students competed as part of the gifted program.
