Pearsall Intermediate students participated in spreading holiday cheer by holding a food drive, where all items were donated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church food pantry and a toy drive, donating all toys to the CASA toy drive. Students were entered into a drawing for a gift basket during each drive. Pictured are fourth graders that participated with Pearsall Intermediate Counselor Josefa Olvera and gift basket winners Isabella Garcia, third grade and Alyssa Maldonado, fourth grade. “There is never a bad time to be thoughtful, but this is certainly one of the best times. Our students exemplified this and we are proud of them. I appreciate all our students and parents who made these drives a success.” Olvera said.
