Students and Lincoln Grade School in Robinson, Illinois are learning how it feels to give. Teachers say it's due to the culture they've created.

The school librarian, Holly Gallagher, is collecting donations to help a school in Texas rebuild their book collection after Hurricane Harvey. Mauriceville Middle School was hit hard with flooding and the library books were ruined.

Gallagher is selling ticket for a dollar. At the end of the week she will draw a winning ticket and that student will get a signed copy of a "Captain Underpants" book.

Lincoln Grade School celebrated their third annual Pinkout Day on Wednesday, October 21st.  Each year we recognize family members and come together as an entire building to show our pink colors.  This year's theme was HOPE.  Each student and staff member had the opportunity to wear pink and be part of our school picture.  Thanks to all that helped organize this event and to everyone's participation.  Let us all remember this "Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world.  For, indeed, that's all who ever have."
