On February 22, Mark Twain Elementary held a special assembly to honor their neighbor Max, whose home was destroyed by a fire, and MT student Jacob who, with his mom, helped notify Max his house was on fire.
We are incredibly proud of Jacob, our students, our staff, and community for coming together to help Max.
Students collected $2,244 to help Max start over. They also presented him with an American flag and a blanket made by the Steamer Academy after school program students. Jacob receive honors and recognition from both the Bettendorf fire and police departments.
