Today was the band queen coronation.  The queen is a sweet girl.  She lives with her grandmother.  Her grandmother is retired, on a fixed income, no insurance.

Last week her grandma had a stroke.  Money was already tight, but now there is no money for a fancy dress, and shoes, and hair, and nails, and etc…

She was devastated. 

The senior class, with no urging from any faculty, started raising money.  They raised enough for the fancy dress, and shoes, and hair, and nails, and etc…

And enough to help pay some of the medical costs.

In one day.

There may be some bad kids out there, but every now and again the cream rises to the top, and the future looks bright again.


  1. She is one of the good ones yes??…..they emulate what they see everyday…zman

  2. It’s stories like this that restores my faith in people and kids in particular. Thanks for sharing.

  3. That’s really awesome.

    I hope my eighth graders grow into such fine people.

  4. sooo awesome!

  5. Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! I am SO proud of them!! What great kiddos!!

  6. Why is it that these stories hardly ever make the evening news, yet everytime one of our children does something terrible (usually due to mental illness) it’s plastered all over the place? I’m so proud of your kids! That’s such a wonderful example of what our kids are capable of when given a chance. I hope The Queen has the time of her life. This is, obviously, something she will NEVER forget. I also will say a prayer for her grandma’s recovery.

  7. Any update on the grandma?
