These Missouri kids are tough. They've seen a catastrophic event tear through their town. Now they need some comfort as they return to a school year that will be like nothing any of us have experienced. Staying close to one another and finding comfort in the smallest things will be detrimental to learning this year. With so many changes in our community, life will never be the same. My students already had huge hurdles to overcome. Home lives are inconsistent at best with drugs, abuse, or neglect a normal way of life. This school building and 3rd grade classroom will be a place of support and stability for our children. What's most amazing is they come to school with smiles and excitement waiting to discover something new. I can't wait for the first day of school each year!
