MONONA -- The third and fourth graders at Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) School in Monona started the year with a service project to help people affected by the flood in Louisiana.

Sr. Sue Keim, second grade teacher at IHM, has a sister, Judy, and nieces and nephews who live in one of the hardest hit areas of Louisiana.

Judy is a member of Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Denham Springs, La., which sustained considerable damage in the floods

Kaitlyn Jasica and Sara Lipski, third and fourth grade teachers at IHM, worked with Sister Sue to come up with an idea of how students could help.

The Early Childhood Learning Center at the Louisiana parish was severely damaged and lost everything.

The teachers and students decided to help by filling the art supply closet of the center.

Each class at IHM was assigned a type of supply to donate. These ranged from writing utensils, to paper, to craft supplies (googly eyes, craft sticks, pipe cleaners, etc.). Members of the parish also donated items.

The classes were able to gather 13 boxes of supplies that were sent out on September 19.
