Students Helping Students During Crisis

5-11-05 - A Healdton elementary school class is sending their thoughts to a 2nd grade class in Illinois. That class lost two students this week – the little girls murdered in Zion, Illinois.

But losing a classmate is something the Healdton 2nd graders know about firsthand. 9-year-old Sierra Shannon was killed in a car accident back in April. At the time, an elementary class in Oklahoma City sent them sympathy cards. Now this class is doing the same. On Wednesday they made cards and letters using construction paper and butterfly cutouts.

The school mailed those cards to Illinois this afternoon.
