Several students from the Osseo School District went to Mexico this past school year to deliver school supplies to children. In Mexico, students must provide their own paper and pencils to attend school, so the supplies delivered by the District 279 students enable Mexican children to stay in school. Groups of students have been collecting and taking these annual trips since 2007.
Shown are the 2013 team of students buying a years supply of paper for students in Mexico.
