Students in Art Bader's second grade class at Parkway Local Schools were enthusiastic about helping those at Mission of Hope school in Haiti. Class aide Lisa Obringer's cousin works at the mission and she has communicated with local students about life since the earthquake in January. A "helping box" filled with supplies for Haitian students was shipped this week. Bader and Obringer are the adults in the above photo.
