DAYTON, Ind. (WLFI) -- Students at Dayton Elementary are out performing community service this week as a part of their Leader In Me program.

All year long students have been learning in class about way they can become leaders.

This week is a week of service and every class in the elementary will be out helping someone in the community.

On Wednesday, fourth graders in Hannah Vaughn's class placed American flags on the graves of veterans at Dayton Cemetery.

Vaughn hopes this week of service gives students a sense of community and shows them the joy of helping others.

"Serving others is just such an important part of life and we need to find ways to do that throughout our life and this is a good opportunity for kids that don't get that chance," said Vaughn.

This was the first year for the Leader In Me program at Dayton, and Vaughn said they plan on doing it every year.

"Being a leader of yourself is important but it's just as important to lead others, and one of the ways that we can do that is by serving others and our community around us," said Vaughn.

Some other classes have planted flowers, swept the floors at the fire department and spread mulch.
