Lit­tle boy who loves school needs new clothes

The Star Democrat - - FRONT PAGE -

Ron­aldo is a bright lit­tle boy who loves kinder­garten. He works hard to make friends, fol­lows all the rules and is vol­un­teer­ing con­stantly to help his teach­ers.

His teach­ers say he is their fa­vorite stu­dent.

Ron­aldo is anx­ious to prac­tice his let­ters and try to read.

He gets to talk and play with friends at lunch and re­cess. He also loves paint­ing, draw­ing and col­or­ing when his class gets to do artis­tic things.

At the end of the day, he is sad to go home, where he is the only child.

As he says good­bye, he al­ways says he can’t wait to come back to school, his teach­ers re­port.

Ron­aldo’s fa­ther comes home ev­ery day dog tired af­ter long hours as a farm la­borer. It usu­ally is dark when he gets home, and it’s past Ron­aldo’s bed­time.

His mother makes what money she can babysit­ting for oth­ers who work.

Ron­aldo’s par­ents say they need help to pro­vide some gifts for him at Christ­mas.

He needs new clothes and they are anx­ious for Ron­aldo to be able to find a tree with some toys un­der it on Christ­mas morn­ing.
