Helping out

Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School ninth-graders recently decided that they wanted to raise $1,000 to help with the devastation in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of hurricane Maria. The students put on a dance and hosted a "Penny Wars" event to reach their fundraising goal. The $1,000-plus donation was proudly sent to United for Puerto Rico last week.
