Cato-Meridian Elementary Teacher Arranges Special Donations for Class

Over the past several years, Cato-Meridian Elementary teacher Amanda Dashnau and her community have displayed acts of generosity and kindness towards new students.

Every year, Mrs. Dashnau's friends, family members, and community members donate books to the students in her class. Each person writes a positive, encouraging note somewhere inside of the book and wishes the student well for the school year.
 
"It brings me so much joy to put this together every year, to see their smiles as they read the notes and know someone is thinking about them, wishing them great success!" said Mrs. Dashnau.
