Students Receive New Shoes Thanks to Pen Pals, Staff and Community Members

All 29 students in Mrs. Lynette Paxton’s class at B-L Elementary School received a brand new pair of sneakers for Christmas thanks to generous financial contributions from classroom pen pals, school staff members, and local residents.


The children received their gifts on Monday, December 17th just before the start of the district’s winter break.  Included in their gift bags were also three pairs of socks, a Wendy’s gift card, and a card that is redeemable for free Wendy’s Frostys throughout the year.


Mrs. Paxton coordinated the fundraising efforts and brought all of the students together at the same time so that they could receive their gifts in unison.  The class celebration was made even more memorable thanks to delicious bakery treats that were also donated by community members.
