The Students are gathering any loose change they can find around the house, and then giving it to their homeroom teachers,so it can be donated to their sister-school.

 ” I was in Grand Forks right after the flood of ’97. I was able to see the impact a flood has.People don’t understand how hard it is to recover from that. Anyway we can help the school out . . we want to do that,” said  Sara Streeter, Jefferson Elementary principal.

Principal Streeter said  the school has raised about $300 dollars since Monday, and
they will be doing a final tally on Friday.
