The Stay Warm Drive for the children of Mann School started a few years when I noticed children walking home from school on a cold day without hats, scarves, or gloves.

I posted a call for warm clothing to the Tower Grove South yahoo group and donations quickly arrived from neighbors in TGS.

I did a call again this year and was so proud of my neighbors! Over 12 large plastic bags stuffed full of new (store bought and still had the tags) clothing for the kids. Many of the bags were left anonymously on my porch.

I dropped off the bags this week and met the principal, Brian Zimerman.
He asked the kids for assistance unloading my car, I asked for photos and here's "Mr. Zimmerman" and the kids who arrived to help.

These are some seriously cute and studious children.
However, I am reminded of a quote from Fran Leibovitz: Stand firm in your refusal to remain conscious during algebra. In real life, I assure you, there is no such thing as algebra.

These girls get to bring their animals to school!

The students along with their music teacher, wrote and staged a play called RATS (with a nod to CATS).

As I was leaving I snapped this photo of shiny shoe worn by the school security guard.
