Looking beyond our own needs and showing compassion toward others are top goals at Durham Intermediate School. All classes participated in a competition to earn points for the most shoes, socks and laces brought in each week.

At the end of the drive, the 5 and 6 grade class earning the most points won the Most CompasSHOEnate Class award and a popcorn party. Congratulations to Ms. Hinzman’s 5 grade and Mrs. Snow’s 6 grade classes!
