Title

Judy Swenson's 2nd grade class letters to pen pals soon after the tornado

Subject

Tornadoes--Hesston (Kan.)

Description

A few weeks after the tornado, Judy Swenson's second-grade class wrote to their pen pals in Mrs. Veach's class in Great Bend. Updates about their situations after the tornado appear amidst comments about everyday life like pets and toys.

Mark O'Halloran wrote, "I'm having a sort of hard day. I can't sleep in my bed because it has glass on it from the tornado." But he assured his pal, "If you wanted to know we can fix my house."

Mrs. Church's class in Haysville also wrote to Mrs. Swenson's class. Haysville had held a Read-a-Thon to raise support for Hesston.
