Students at South Mountain Elementary School in Rib Mountain are raising money to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. By Monday, they hope to raise $500.

The money is earmarked to go to Rhame Elementary School in Rockaway, New York. The hurricane caused severe damage to the school and left many of the teachers and students homeless. By partnering with the school, South Mountain students say they will have the chance to reach out and help others in need. In addition, the students have spent time in the classroom learning about the damage caused by the hurricane.

Parent Marne Bruner says the project is a great teaching tool, "This will go beyond the holidays. Once the Rhame School is back up and running and communications are easier, we plan to write letters to the students and skype with them. This is a life lesson."
