For an elementary student, crayons, pencils and notebooks are important part of the school day. For many students, having brand new school supplies can often be a luxury. Thanks to a generous donation on Oct. 25 from the Prince Hall Order of the Eastern Star organization located in Kansas City, the students at George Melcher Elementary School have new supplies.
“We sincerely appreciate the support of our community, especially from the Eastern Star organization,” Melcher Elementary Principal Patricia Hayes said. “Most adults forget how opening a new box of crayons can bring such happiness to a child. These supplies will bring a lot of smiles throughout the school year.”
Thank you to the Prince Hall Order of the Eastern Star for their big-hearted gift!
