SMS students raise more than $1,200 in annual Christmas project
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of South Middle School students, led by the Student Council, underprivileged Joplin children received a merry Christmas.
Students raised money through Penny Wars and numerous other projects during December. On the final day before the Christmas break, Student Council members shopped at Wal-Mart for toys and gifts for the children.
The gifts were unveiled during an assembly during seventh hour that day.
