This put me in a good mood. Last week, I had a 4th grader come to my office. I don't even remember for what, it wasn't anything big. But I noticed she didn't have a pencil case and instead was using an old plastic berry container to carry her supplies around. This is a family pretty well known to the staff, very low socioeconomic status, struggles in school, etc. It made me sad to see her without school supplies so I lamented to my sister about it.
Two days later I had an Amazon
Prime box in my office. My sister had bought a pencil case and shipped it to school for me to give to this student. It's a really nice one, too. My sister's an alright gal.
Hope this cheers you all up, wherever you are.
