Your View: Proud of students

JOPLIN, Mo. — Wow! I am so proud of the students I read about in two stories in Tuesday’s (Feb. 4) issue of the Globe. And I don’t even know any of them.

The story about the students at Stapleton Elementary who are raising funds to take to Moore, Okla., to “pay it forward” was just inspirational.

The story about the students at South Middle School who not only brought the story of Irena Sendler, the real-life Holocaust-era child rescuer, to light but who are also putting on a play about her life was beyond heartwarming.

What a pleasure to read these types of articles. All of the students, their teachers and their parents are to be applauded.

A new provision by the U.S. Department of Agriculture allows qualifying districts with high percentages of students on food assistance to allow all students to eat free breakfasts and lunches. Would you agree with this provision?
