A note from Ms. Hooper
Words can not express how amazing and generous your school has been! I had all of the fifth grade classes "shop" for what they needed (there are five classes total, three are mine). After so much was left that I gave it to my counselor to share with the rest of the campus. We hung your sign in the fifth grade hall so they can have a positive reminder that there are angels out there. This is my homeroom class, man it was hard to get my boys to smile!
