Special Second-graders at Westmont Elementary participated in their third annual "Lemonade Wars."

Second-grade pupils at Westmont Elementary School learned a valuable lesson recently when they participated in the third annual Lemonade Wars on the school playground.

The pupils read Jac-queline Davies’ story The Lemonade War, which teaches conflict resolution, teamwork, how to apply math to everyday life, marketing skills and the importance of charity.

They put the book into action when, armed with cups of lemonade and their best sales tactics, they sold the beverage to their peers during recess.

Each class – five in all – had a designated day to sell, with all proceeds going to their class’ particular charity. This year’s charities included the American Heart Association, Ronald McDonald House, Georgia PKU Connect, Alex’s Lemonade Stand and the Columbia County Humane Society.

In all, the pupils raised $1,431 for the charities.
