To the Editor:
The students and staff of Truman Elementary want to give a heartfelt thank you to the students and staff at Five Lakes and William Budd elementary schools.
Shortly after the 14 inches of rain fell on Truman in October, I?received a call from Principal Jim Davison. He was calling to ask if there was anything we might need, as his elementary students were concerned about ours. What they decided to do was collect money and let us choose what to do next. I?was grateful for the wonderful gesture.
Principal Davison called the other day and informed me that students from the two elementary schools had collected almost $900. Amazing, unbelievable, overwhelming. Those were a few of the comments I heard when our students and staff were informed.
It is comforting to know there are still caring, giving children in smalltown Minnesota. Thank you Fairmont elementary students. Your kind, giving gesture means more than words can say.
Brian Shanks, principal
Truman Public Schools,
