Another Thank You!

To Ms. Hassenplug's class,
No kind act goes unnoticed. The kindness you passed forward to my Multiply Disabled class through the gift of books was extremely generous. My students enjoy hearing stories daily and derive much pleasure from books that are read. We were fortunate to receive four new books for our personal library from your gift. One particular book chosen will always remind us of your kindness. It is entitled Have You Filled a Bucket Today? It states that we all carry invisible buckets and others can choose to either fill or empty them. The book helps teach the importance of filling buckets by doing good deeds, lifting others up, not tearing them down or depleting their joy by hurting them. You all chose to fill our buckets with goodness, kindness and generosity. We truly appreciate this. May you continue to think of others and reap the joy that comes from giving. Fondly, Mrs. Jeanne Heinke and the staff and students from the HPRHS Multiply Disabled class.

Thank You!

To Ms. Hassenplug's class of '08 students:

Thank you all from myself and my class for the wonderful gift of books that you have given us. The books arrived today and caused much excitement in my classroom when Ms. Hassenplug delivered them. One of the books we requested is an audio book, "The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog". We're certain that this is a book that Scruffy will enjoy listening to with us! Thanks again for your generosity and thoughtfulness. We'll think of you all whenever we read these stories.

Mrs. Smith and the students of the MCI Class
