Fancy Farm 3rd graders' Uganda Campaign

Fancy Farm Elementary third graders in teacher Kim Brickeen’s class recently collected clothes, shoes, backpacks and Gameboys for an orphanage in Uganda. Graves County High School guidance counselor Laura Marrs and her husband, Shawn Marrs, will deliver the items to the children in person. The third graders had studied the word “campaign,” meaning special project, and decided they wanted to create a campaign of their own. When the opportunity to help disadvantaged children appeared, they whole-heartedly took on the project. “Even greater than learning a new vocabulary word,” their teacher said, “these students learned compassion for others.”
