Messages for Minot from Grand Forks area kids

Here are some messages of hope and encouragement from Laura Knox’s Awesome Authors group in Grand Forks. Some of the students’ siblings also submitted pictures. They wanted to show support for the people of Minot. These students (who will be entering grades 1-3 in the next school year) participated in a summer creative writing class taught by Laura Knox, kindergarten teacher at Viking Elementary in Grand Forks.

  1. These are wonderful!! The young authors did a tremendous job and what a great teacher (Ms. Knox). Kudos to all of you!!

  2. Thank you Sue, for your wonderful idea for this project! The kids were excited to participate. I’m so proud of them. There isn’t much, in this world, that is more heartwarming than the sincerity of a child! The people of Minot need this right now.

  3. Without a doubt, the love and sincerity of children is genuine. Grand Forks citizens of all ages know how it feels to be inundated from a flood, and our hearts ache for the people of Minot.
