The school year is coming to an end; desks and lockers are being cleaned.  Usually items that have had little use either go home or are thrown away.  Not this year!

Students at the Matherville Intermediate School in the Sherrard School District started organizing school supplies that were unused or gently used for the tornado victims of Jplin, Missouri.  Students gave paper, pencils, pens, markers, glue, books, crayons, colored pencils, and even brought shampoo and soap from home.  In all, over eleven boxes were packed and will be sent to a community center for families and children free of charge.
