On January 11, 2023, Paxton Smith, Park Magnet Elementary School 5th grader, presented a donation of $350.40 to the 3rd grade classes at Jessieville Elementary. When he heard about the tornado that struck the Jessieville School campus on January 2, Paxton knew that he wanted to do something to help the students. After receiving permission from his principal to raise money for Jessieville, he created and placed posters around the school asking for donations. Jessieville 3rd graders have chickens that they are responsible for watering and feeding each day as well as gathering the eggs. The donation will be added to other funds that have been raised to replace the 3rd grade chicken coop that was destroyed by the tornado.
The Jessieville School District is very thankful for Paxton and his thoughtfulness and will be looking for opportunities to pay this kindness forward.
